PREPARE YOURSELVES FOR an extra-long Sunday morning lie-in: the clocks go back an hour tonight.

(Ok, not tonight, but in the early hours of Sunday morning.)

Daylight Saving Time, or Summer Time, ends at 2.00am on Sunday 28 October, when clocks go back one hour.

The Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence, Alan Shatter, TD reminded the general public that “Winter Time” will commence at 1.00 am Greenwich Mean Time on Sunday 28 October, 2012.

Winter time will end at 1:00 am Greenwich Mean Time on Sunday 31 March, 2013.

Enjoy the extra hour in bed.
