A repeat of early April 1917 would be something to experience. Amazing that this mid spring snow event remains the biggest on record. However, the short to medium prospects suggest we'll be stuck with these miserable polar maritime westerlies for a while yet.

The nicest morning in this part of Mayo for a while. Bright skies and lack of wind are very welcome. A shower or two out to the west but thankfully there does not seem much to them. Birds in full voice and a few daffodils out. Not too bad at all. 4c.

Bitter cold but alluringly sunny.. A historic occasion as for the first time in weeks it was not just possible but totally tempting to go for a walk down the lane... Sun dazzling as it rose through white clouds.... fresh green buds on the rose hedging and even picked purple flowers on the evergreen bush..

Forgiving of the vicious hail shower that came as we ( cats and I ) were almost home and more of these between sunny whiles. .

another lovely sunny day in Meath. Really enjoying this dry and settled spell if a little cool at times. The ground is still saturated but a drying trend is definitely noticeable in the dryer parts of the garden. 3rd sunny and dry day in a row here now and it's most welcome.

A couple of heavy hail showers today, which turned the ground white

Day 3 of the sunshine nearly unbroken all day, and got the grass cut, ground has dried out a fair bit over the last 3 or 4 days considering the rainfall totals, lets keep it going

And back in 1998 I think, we were in t-shirts on St Patrick's Day if I remember rightly. In Dublin anyway.

I think 2004 was the same. Remember being in Croke park and like a summers day.

Just cycled home from town in Dublin. There's no wind! It feels like a different planet, I've been getting absolutely lashed out of it for what seems like months and now it's just silence cycling around. My kinda weather.

First (mostly) dry day in what feels like forever in Letterkenny today, still couldn't totally escape the showers but far less frequent than the past couple of days. More of the same please
