Poll: Do you prefer sunshine or rainy days?

Give it to us straight. Be honest.

IT’S THE TIME of the year when statistically at least, we’re most likely to be getting some good weather in this part of the world.

It’s not always a given, however. Aside from some brief bright spots, Ireland hasn’t had much chance to bask in the sunshine so far this summer.

It could be worse though. Other countries have been having a tougher time of it; more than 2 inches (54mm) of rain fell in Paris on Sunday night, the equivalent of 27 days of rainfall.

That got us thinking: is sunshine overrated? Is it better to have a typical Irish day over a sunny day? Or is this crazy talk and should we be trying to soak up every last ounce of sunshine that we possibly can?

Over to you: Do you prefer sunshine or rainy days?

Poll Results:

Sunshine, definitely (5070)
I like both (1508)
Rain, definitely (985)
I actually like snow more than anything (468)
