In pictures: Your time in the glorious sunshine...

We’ve got dogs in paddling pools, a camel on a Donegal beach and horses cooling off at the car wash. Yes, really.

GOOD GOD IT’S hot out there, perfect for a day in the bog footing turf, drying clothes or just kicking back and relaxing.

In fact, it’s so hot right now in Ireland, Met Éireann have issued a warning that temperatures will exceed 27 degrees Celsius every day this week. That’s every single day – until at least Sunday anyway.

Everyone is out enjoying  this well-deserved break from all of the hail, sleet and snow (remember March?), so we asked our readers to send us in pictures of their time in the glorious sunshine.

We’ve been sent dogs in paddling pools, camels on the beach and horses cooling off at the car wash. Yes, we’re serious, check them out for yourselves:
