Ice Cream Sellers Preparing For Increased Demand
The month of June is gearing up to be mostly dry with average temperatures of 19 or 20 degrees, according to the long-term forecast.
Joe Quinn from Quinn's Bon Bon in Salthill is preparing for a very busy weekend:
"Ah it's fantastic news altogether!"
"The sun is shining here now, after some rain earlier on."
Joe says he hopes the sun continues to shine, to bring the "stay-cationers," out.
"Sunshine means everything to us here in Salthill!"
He says people never want ice cream when it rains.
...and can you blame them?
