READERS PICTURES: Ireland basks in the beautiful summer sun

Today we asked our Facebook and Twitter followers to send us their photos of them enjoying the summer sun.

Met Éireann said that temperatures today in Ireland were hotter then some Mediterranean countries, hitting the mid-to-high 20s.

We were absolutely blown away by your response and decided to pick out some of what we thought were the best pictures.

Thanks to all for the pictures, it was impossible to go through them all. Seems we really are enjoying today's sunshine.

It's a great country, if only we could roof it!
