IT'S going to be a wet and wild weekend.

A myriad of events have been planned for the coming days but bank holiday revellers are advised to bring their wellies.

While temperatures in Dublin will reach upwards of 20C from tomorrow to Monday, there is also a strong possibility of rain.

"At the moment our models show that the rain could pass over and hit the west coast of England and Wales, but there is a possibility of showers on the east coast," Met Eireann's Deirdre Lowe said.

She explained that the outlook was much the same for the weekend, calm and warm but possibly wet.

Whatever the weather, the crowds will be determined to have a good time at events over the weekend.

A scaled back Oxegen will take place at Punchestown Racecourse with acts such as Calvin Harris and David Guetta due to play to crowds of around 25,000.

Castlepalooza will take place at Charleville Castle, in Tullamore, Co Offaly, with a number of up-and-coming acts lined up to play. Stress-busting neck massages and eye-catching face art are among the special treats in store for visitors to the Vodafone World of Difference tent of the festival.

The Indiependence festival will take place in Cork, while on Saturday evening Dublin take on Cork at Croke Park for the quarter finals of the All-Ireland Football Championships.
