After the dullest June since 1993 at Dublin Apt, July with 102.5 hrs was the third dullest July on record and dullest since 1986. August would need at least 139.0 hrs of sun to save it from being the dullest summer on record.

February this year, despite all the rain and shorter daylight, had slightly more sun than July with 103.3 hrs.

From the figures I have available, Cork seemed to fare best with 161.8 hrs provisionally which is close to average, though Johnstown Castle might have had more.

Monthly summary be available around Tuesday or Wednesday in anyway to confirm.

The opposite here bucketing down and nothing on the radar.

Heavy Showers but jobs outside have to be done.

Yesterday was the start of the old harvesting season. Not in this weather.

Nice start to the morning in West cork, dry and some blue sky with sun. Was some showers earlier though and presumably will be some.more later on.

Glorious now. Amazing what a change you can have if the clouds clear and the sun comes out.

Met Eireann says no more rain for the rest of the day now in the far north, off to the beach for an hour or so.

If only we had this more often.

Another lovely day in Cork City. Yesterday morning was nice but cloudy in the middle part of the day. Today not as warm as of late but you can't argue with blue skies and 18 degrees.
