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.
