Poll: When do you think summer starts?
Your daily bite-sized ballot break.

IT’S A GREY day across much of Ireland today after an all-too-brief spell of sunny weather.

Fingers crossed that that wasn’t the only good weather Ireland is going to get over the next few months, but it raises an important question: is it actually summer yet?

Many of us were taught in school that summer begins on 1 May, but meteorologists say that it doesn’t start until the first day of June.

What about you, though. When do you think summer starts? 

Poll Results:

1st May (3900)
1st June (3612)
Who cares, I'm just happy if it's sunny (1828)
Some time between those dates (592)
Another date altogether (345)
