Shaking off the weekend rain, Monday will clear up ahead of a mostly dry day on Tuesday with “long spells of sunshine and just the small chance of a few light showers in Connacht and Ulster,” Met Éireann predict.
Highest temperatures will creep up to between 21-24 degrees during the day, accompanied by cool dry nights.
