On Easter Sunday evening, RTÉ weather forecaster, Evelyn Cusack, said that Salesian Brother James O`Hare, former principal of Warrenstown Horticultural College, had sent local weather reports to Met Éireann on the first working day of each month over the past 63 years. Each morning at 9 o`clock, Bro. James faithfully registered the minimum and maximum air temperatures, humidity, ground temperatures at 5, 10 and 20 cm below the surface, as well as rainfall and cloud cover details. Opened in 1951, Warrenstown is one of the country`s weather stations. Bro. James` interest in weather reporting came from its importance for gardeners and farmers whom he taught for more than 50 years.
