2010 in the top three warmest years
Cancun/Geneva (World Meterological Organisation) - "The year 2010 is almost certain to rank in the top 3 warmest years since the beginning of instrumental climate records in 1850, according to data sources compiled by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The global combined sea surface and land surface air temperature for 2010 (January–October) is currently estimated at 0.55°C ± 0.11°C1 above the 1961–1990 annual average of 14.00°C. At present, 2010’s nominal value is the highest on record, just ahead of 1998 (January-October anomaly +0.53°C) and 2005 (0.52°C)2. The ERA-Interim3 reanalysis data are also indicating that January-October 2010 temperatures are near record levels. The final ranking of 2010 will not become clear until November and December data are analysed in early 2011. Preliminary operational data from 1-25 November indicate that global temperatures from November 2010 are similar to those observed in November 2005, indicating that global temperatures for 2010 are continuing to track near record levels."
I cannot follow the maths ( average of 55 C would fry us) but the message seems clear enough. Things are continuing to hot up.

Curracahill is the 633rd highest spot in Ireland. It would be about 633rd on my list of good walks.
