Tonight at 7:00 pm on RTÉ One, award-winning science communicator Dr Lara Dungan investigates the realities of climate change in Ireland. We might like the idea of some warmer weather in our cold and rainy country but what would that actually look like?

Eco Eye takes a look at Ireland's coastal communities as they fight rising tides, the latest in agricultural science, plant life and the country's changing geography.

There is no doubt that Ireland will be facing some big changes in the near future due to climate change and Eco Eye's host Lara Dungan looks to Trócaire's Niamh Garvey to find out what effect it has had on the world's developing nations.

Watch brand new Eco Eye on RTÉ One tonight, Tuesday 31st of January at 7:00 PM. Missed last week's episode? Catch up on RTÉ Player.
