Pensioners across Newry have embraced the recent warm weather by unbuttoning their top buttons of their duffle coats.
As temperatures soar into the high teens, some gentlemen OAPs have even been spotted loosening their ties.
Old aged pensioner Lilly O’Hare told Newry Spud:
“It’s been getting pretty warm lately and in weather like this, we need to think of our health. I’ve loosened the top button of my winter coat and my friend Rosie down the road has opened her window slightly. She nearly turned her heating off too but thank God I made her see some sense.”
Another pensioner has also taken off their waistcoat. Eddie Lynch said:
“I was getting a bit sweaty and starting to smell of mince and onions so I’ve taken it off and will put it on when the sun goes down.”
Temperatures are expected to soar in Newry over the next few days.
