Dublin Airport and Mullingar, Co Westmeath, were the other two stations that had their warmest October in 20 years.

It comes amid a warning at the Cop 26 Climate Summit that Europe's hottest summer on record wouldn't have happened without human-induced climate change.

A new European record was set in Sicily - where it got to 48.8 degrees Celsius.
