The warm weather and predicted heatwave have boosted profits.

Sales are already up this year following an extended warm spell in May.

And it's about to get even hotter as temperatures are set to reach 30 degrees in places over the coming days.

Maurice Butler, owner of Butlers ice-cream in Dungarvan in county Waterford, says ice cream sales are up but it's popular all year round:

3. Strawberry
4. Chocolate & Vanilla

6. Coconut
