For me this is the most accurate weather app for Irish weather. It follows the same theme as the weather forecast on RTE One so it is easy to understand. The user interface is very poor though: it does not follow the Android design or flow at all. It feels more like an ancient website squashed down to fit mobile screens.

I use this app regularly. I particularly like the live rainfall radar as it shows me as a biker where the rain is, and what direction it might head. The location services though DO NOT WORK! Only if I click through to the website does it find my location. This should be repaired as soon as possible.

Accurate app but it's let down by a few things. Default location is Dublin, can't be changed. Have to search my area every time I use it. The widget is likewise stuck on Dublin, making it useless. Turning on "My Location" used to make the app crash. It doesn't crash the app anymore but it still does nothing, default is always Dublin. I would definitely be using this more, including the widget, if it actually displayed relevant information to me by default.
