We might as well accept it. Summer in Ireland is a chimera, an utopian concept passed down through the generations.
There is no such thing as “summer” in this country. Rather, it’s a continuation of Spring by other means, so to speak.
And it has just been confirmed that the past month of July was actually the coldest for the last 22 years, with an average temperature of just 14.3C.
To top things off, Ireland seems to be bucking the trend of global warming, heading down the opposite way instead. According to weather authorities, Ireland’s current weather is the coldest for almost three decades.
