Poll: Should Ireland switch time zones?

A new piece of law being considered would allow Ireland to move the clocks forward by an hour. Should we do it?

AN OIREACHTAS COMMITTEE is looking for submissions from the public about a proposed change in law to allow Ireland to move to the Central European Time Zone.

It has been argued that moving the clocks forward by one hour could result in trade benefits, a boost to tourism and a drop in crime.

A new piece of legislation on the table now would allow the move on a three year trial period and then permanently if it worked out.

We want to know: Do you think Ireland should switch to the Central European Time Zone?
