Dublin: 9 °C Wednesday 12 December, 2018

Your beautiful sunrise start to the day...

…well, that didn’t last long, did it?

IRELAND’S SKIES GIVETH… and they taketh away.

We noted the glowing start to the day and asked to share your pics of what it was like where you are.

And things looked equally bright in Corbo, Kilrooskey, Roscommon, where Michelle Fallon snapped this, telling us, “Oh, what a beautiful morning!”

But, as per our recent grey spell, it didn’t translate to a sunny morning. As Colm Gillen reported to us from the Stillorgan Road outside Dublin at 7.30am…

And to put that in context… Yup, cloudy with a chance of drizzle.
