Ireland is a country ruled by its weather. A fact that we are blissfully aware of this week.
Met Éireann confirmed that a sweltering 29.3˚ C was recorded at Shannon airport yesterday and both today and tomorrow are set to be scorchers with highs of 26 to 30˚ C !
Social media is awash with amateur photographers capturing magnificent summer sunsets and turquoise coastal waters.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that people were not strictly sticking to their #nofilterneeded statements...or could it be that real sunlight actually makes the water bluer?

You may even be inclined to sneak the kids paddling pool into your local beer garden for a truly Irish Summer Experience. Last June, during a brief warm spell and to the delight of their regulars, one pub moved their pool table out into the car park and capitalised on the headline ‘Pub in Wexford has Outdoor Pool’ for a few days.
And Irish people really do love to talk about the weather. It’s our ‘go-to’ topic for small talk, a conversation filler while we try to think of something more interesting to say. According to a 2015 survey carried out by Ipsos MRBI on behalf of Dulux Weathershield and subsequently quoted by an Irish Mirror reporter; 60% of Irish people talk about the weather at least twice a day, 25% chat about it four times a day and 62% of Irish people believe every weather forecast!
If you are one of the many people working in an industry where the weather can directly affect footfall (retail, food, hospitality, leisure, gaming, transport…etc. etc.) then this week has the potential to be one of the busiest weeks of the year for you.
