Welcome to Irish meteorologist and weatherman, Gerald Fleming, as our new Honorary President.
Originally from County Wexford, he attended University College Dublin where he studied for four years and earned a Bachelor of Science in Experimental Physics. In 1980 he achieved a Master of Science following two years of research in the Atmospherics Group of the UCD Physics Department. When he left university, he moved straight to Irish Met Service and after sixteen months training, he was deployed to Dublin Airport as an aviation forecaster. He moved to the Glasnevin base two years later. He joined Met Éireann in 1980 and worked as coordinator of the RTÉ Television team and served as Head of Forecasting in Met Éireann until his recent retirement in 2017. We are delighted to have him on board and wish him well in his tenure.
We also say a huge THANK YOU and farewell to our former Honorary President Dr. Conor O’Brien.
