For those attending the All-Ireland Final today, Met Éireann is warning them to be ‘sun smart’ as there will be a lot of sun exposure for spectators today in Croke Park.
“The UV index will be very high so it’s important to be sun smart, so make sure to put on sun cream before people go out and for those going to the game bring some with you so you can reapply during the game,” meteorologist Aoife Kealy said.
“Also make sure you are covered up; most people will bring a cap, but it is extremely important to keep yourself as covered up from the sun as possible.
“If you are going to be outdoors, you can’t avoid it, so it is important then that you stay hydrated, bring plenty of water and particularly for young kids as well.”
