Scorchio! Your photos of Ireland looking gorgeous in the sunshine today
It’s not a bad looking country, all the same.

WE ASKED, YOU answered.

Temperatures today are going to be so high that Met Éireann has officially issued a weather warning.

Given that it’s taken so long for summer to finally get here, we asked readers to send in their photos of the sunshine around the country, and boy did you guys deliver. You lot seem to have been spending your time on beaches, eating ice-cream and just spending time outside drinking it all in, judging by your photos.

Here are some of the best shots we received on email, Twitter and Facebook which make Ireland look like an entirely different country in the sunshine.  Good work, everyone.
