June Bank Holiday Weekend: Could Summer be Arriving?

I certainly don't want to jinx things for June 2014 visitors to Ireland, let alone for those who live there.

However, a bit of warmer and dryer weather will be welcomed by all:

This time of year is my father's birthday. I have distinct memories of 2 years ago, when we were sitting out in his garden on a warm evening at 10pm with a few drinks for it. It was one of the worst summers on record.

I try not to read too much into early summer weather patterns!

Don't want to put a downer on it but the Leaving Cert starts on Wednesday 4th. Most of the main exams will be over by the following Friday week.

All of us Leaving Cert parents just want bland, uneventful, mediocre (not too hot, not too cold) weather until our teens are finished the exams.

But it was beautiful in the Costa del Shannon today.

It's cold and damp here in the west of Scotland today. We call it smir - that kind of rain that's light, almost like a mist. The kind that's not enough to put up an umbrella in case you look like a total eejit, but that causes your hair to fall into a limp rats-tails like state by the time you get to your work in the morning. Still, at least there's not much wind.

Honestly, looking out of the window you couldn't even guess what season we're in - it really could be any month of the year.

I need a holiday!
