A high temperature warning for the entire country has come to end, after being in place for almost four days.

 

The heatwave officially ended today, according to meteorologists.

 

Cathal Nolan, from Ireland's Weather Channel, says it will be slightly cooler today and tomorrow:

 

"It the heatwave itself will end this weekend but it will be a gradual affair [...] still feeling pleasantly warm."

 

While warm weather was a welcome sight after a difficult 18 months it was not without its share of tragedy.

 

It's after 6 people lost their lives in the Republic and the North's waterways over the last week.

 

They include a man in Dublin, a teenager in Down, another teen in Cavan as well as a woman also in Cavan, a man in Fermanagh and a man in Leitrim.

 

Water Safety Ireland Chief Executive John Leech says it's the worst period for drownings in about 8 years.

 

They're urging any weekend swimmers to only swim at spots with lifeguards on duty.
