Valentia Observatory, Ireland, awarded WMO Centennial Observing Station status

Valentia Observatory was recently recognised as a Centennial Observing Station by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) to celebrate the fact that over 100 years of high-quality continuous meteorological measurements have been recorded at the Observatory. On the 17th February, this milestone was commemorated at the Observatory in Caherciveen, Co. Kerry, Ireland with the unveiling of a plaque by the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins.
