8 little things all Irish people must do before the sun disappears

It’s running out… for now.

IT’S NOT GONNA be around much longer, sorry to say. The sunny spell is due to come to an end tomorrow.

But don’t panic, you can still make the most of it today with our sunny bucket list.

1. Pull a sickie

Work? On a day like this? As if.

2. Wear shorts

Let the sun at those legs, Lord knows they need it. Just keep a jumper and five layers on top for warmth.

3. Get a 99

A absolute must. They just taste so much better in the sun.

4. Have lunch outside

5. Drive with the roof down

Got a convertible? You just don’t get enough use out of it you smug git. Actually, just go home.

6. Take a dip in the nearest body of water

See a bit of water? Dunk yourself into it.

Constantly. Some stock phrases for you:

Lovely weather we’re having.
Great drying.
Hope it lasts to the weekend.
It’ll never last.

8. Go for a pint al fresco after work

Not sure where to go? We’ve got you covered.
