RTÉ weather presenter and Deputy Head of Forecasting in Met Éireann, Evelyn Cusack will visit Longford’s Backstage Theatre next Thursday, March 5 at 8.30pm.

With her presentation, entitled ‘Ireland’s weather; past, present and future, Ms Cusack will take the audience on a journey from the beginning of the earth, where it began and how the atmosphere developed right up to the end of the world.

“It’s sort of telling the story of the climate of the earth which is really our story as well,” Ms Cusack told the Leader in the run up to her visit.

“I’ve been giving public talks for the last ten years so it’s something I enjoy,” she continued, adding, “I hope to take a lot of questions as well.”

The well-known weather expert will also talk about Ireland’s climate, how the weather is forecast, and why the forecasts are sometimes wrong.

Outlining the inter-connecting elements that determine our weather, the Laois native’s visit will be an interesting one, particularly for secondary school students. Evelyn will also speak about the responsibilities of her job and what it takes to be a meteorologist.

A fascinating and informative evening is guaranteed, so don’t miss out! Tickets, costing just €12/€8 are now available from the Backstage Theatre Box Office on 043 33 47888 or online at www.backstage.ie.
