Yes, absolutely - by 2040 Dublin will have average July maximums of 33°c to 36°c and out past the then suburbs the Curragh will see it's sheep replaced with camels as it becomes a desert.
Children just won't know what snow looks like anymore either.
Seriously, all this prediction stuff is akin to the horoscopes
By the way, every city on this island has recorded well above 25°c hundreds of times.
