The searing heat in Kilkenny has seen a high of 30.3C in Kilkenny in the last few weeks and it's having a devastating impact on grass and grass growth.

The high temperatures have seen farmers hit hard again, after a fodder crisis hit the county earlier this year. 

One Kilkenny resident has highlighted the effect the warm weather is having on the landscape, and it's not just grass that's getting being hit. 

The pictures below were taken on the green in The Fairways in Kilkenny City.
