The new drone bought by Carlow Weather

The new Carlow Weather drone has arrived after the old one of forecaster Alan O'Reilly was damaged and needed to be replaced. 

The local weatherman set up a GoFund me page which raised a total of €1,543 out of a €1,450 goal across just three days. 

Alan - who provides an invaluable service to the county with weather forecasts and beautiful snaps from the air of Carlow - says his drone hit rocks.
