If you've had enough of Ireland's mixable summer - now might be a good time to book a little getaway.

Ryanair is having a 48 hour flash sale, it's cut the price of 250,000 seats by up to 30%. The reductions are available until midnight tomorrow (July 26th).

A quick search shows flights to the UK starting at €9.99.

While there's a bunch of European destinations going for less than €20.

This morning Ryanair reported profit growth of 4% for the first quarter of its financial year.

Profits after tax climbed to €256m - earnings per share increased 12% to 20.01 cent.

Revenue for the three months to the end of June grew 2% when compared to the same period in 2015, from €1.65bn to €1.69bn.

The low fares airline carried 31.2 million passengers during its first quarter, up 11% on the same period last year.

CEO Michael O'Leary said that the company was maintaining its guidance that full year profits would rise by approximately 12%, while cautioning that the UK's Brexit decision would pose significant risks for the rest of 2016.
