The sun gods finally smiled on Ireland again this weekend, after months of brutal rain and weeks of biting winds.

The warm and sunny weather yesterday brought people to gardens, beer gardens and even beaches, with many – perhaps prematurely – hailing it as the start of summer.

And the good news is that the weather remains largely dry with plenty of sunny spells – just a few more days.

The dry spell was highly anticipated by farmers and home gardeners, with many finally getting their crops planted in the nick of time, after months of soggy soil conditions.

And sports fans across the country basked in the warm sunshine as the busy summer calendar got underway.

Temperatures reached 18 degrees Celsius yesterday at Abbeyfeale station on the Kerry-Limerick border, although the east coast remained cooler.

The good weather is expected to continue today and through the rest of the week, with Met Éireann predicting mostly dry weather with plenty of sunny spells.
