I see a lot of his sheep are unhappy about it. Think he's shot himself in the foot there

Plenty unhappy about it but plenty planning on paying the €20, fools and their money eh. Must be the thought of purple warnings enticing them.
If only there were free forecasts online people could avail of.
On the last word he started talking about the extreme weather events in Canada, Germany and now here. In fairness to Matt Cooper he pulled him up on how 24c or 25c in July was possibly an extreme weather event......
😂 So he is calling the mid 20s extreme. If he sat in death Valley for 10mins he would know what extreme is.
On his facebook page he had a following who were, how shall I put it, very ill informed. And for some reason 4/5 of his fans were female.
In June 2020 he forecast thunderstorms worse than July 1985, they were going to be the 'thunderstorms of the century'! Large swathes of the country were covered in his new purple warning! No thunder reported anywhere.
In February 2019 he predicted 7-8 inches of snow all through the midlands from Monaghan to South Tipp, east Galway to Kildare. There was sleet on higher ground. They are just 2 of his outlandish forecasts off the top of my head. And yet his site would be full of 'Oh Cathal, your so much better than Evelyn Cusack' BS. Weather hyping doesn't effect most of us who are younger and aren't gullible. But that fella frightened the life out of many older people about major storms and cold spells, where they worried about fuel etc. There are repercussions to this sensationalism. He's a little, it begins with p and ends in k. His political career doesn't bear thinking about, 'Rhode Weatherman' indeed.
I think it was him, that was on one of the radio stations today, giving his tuppence about the weather.
I think it was 4fm/classic hits or RedFm or Newstalk
