These weather pages are the new and refreshed home of the AOP meteorological archives, history, and information. The refreshed look, the new content of these pages, and the improvements to the meteorological databases would not have been possible without the work of the following people:

Tom Watts

Shóna Gavin

Rok Nežič

Nathan Leeman

Michael Burton

Conor Byrne

We would also like to thank a number organisations for their support. Some of the meteorological database work has been made possible through a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Irish Soldiers and Sailors Land Trust provided funding for the calibration of the raw data. The Met Office has worked with us since its inception and has recently helped us set up the new automatic weather station.
