The summer of 2018 was one of the hottest, driest and sunniest on record.

New data from Met Eireann shows that some parts of the country recorded their highest temperatures in decades.

Shannon Airport reached temperatures of 32 degrees while Cork Airport recorded it's driest summer since 1962.

The Phoenix Park in Dublin only saw 38 percent of the average rainfall for the season.

The northern part of the country was cooler than the rest, and August was the coolest month of the three.

Finner, Co. Donegal was the only place in the country where the rainfall total was not below average across the season.
