Not only is the sun splitting the stones... it's splitting the nation.
While some people were BORN for this climate, others... not so much.
We're talking excessive sweat, desperate searches for anything that can be used as a fan, and factor 2000 suncream.
We've reached the point in the heatwave where the grumbles are getting a liiittle bit louder, and we're dangerously close to giving out.
Here's X tweets that prove we're just not built for it.
If we just had more NOTICE, we could have prepared better
I’ve completely run out of office appropriate clothing for this weather, my iPhone no longer recognises my fingerprint because my hands are too sweaty, and I just gave myself heatstroke blowdrying my hair.
Is there anything to be said for another #beastfromtheeast?

When your deodorant is no longer working
Woman at bus stop on O'Connell Street complaining about the warm weather - "It's not the heat so much.......it's the humility." #heatwave

Don't even BOTHER trying to look anyway decent for a night out
If you’re looking to sweat out 673 calories, curl your hair in this weather.

foundation in this weather is an absolute no go for me

The pressure to have "fun" can be a killer
Kinda ready for this weather to be gone so I don’t feel guilty for wanting to stay inside and take naps on a Sunday

We're well outside the celtic comfort zone right now
Cant sleep in that heat and have me window wide open and the fucking noise of two seagulls out having a conversation on me roof the past 2 hours my head is gonzo I’m starting to understand what they’re saying at this stage

The first step is acceptance
Think of the children
I predict that in 9 months there’ll be approximately zero babies born because who could be arsed riding in that heat?!

We haven't evolved for this
We’re just not equipped for this heat. Never mind our infrastructure or water supplies, I’m talking psychologically or emotionally...
Trying to sleep under my “lightest” duvet last night, made me feel like a piece beef brisket in a slow cooker. #heatwave

Where are the fans. Please someone pass us a fan
People in the US & other warmer countries saying Irish people are being "wimps" etc complaining about the heat would ya fuck off. You have air conditioning everywhere & our buildings are purpose built to try keep the heat IN
— David Hollywood (@dw00dz) June 28, 2018
A solid case for giving out
"haha how are they complaining about this heat Brits and the Irish are pathetic"
We literally do not have air con, most households don't even have portable fans, no-one is prepared physically or mentally for this heat, and hour houses are built to retain heat.

Imagine having not one but TWO people inside your skin

Pass the lucozade
It's Sophie's Choice
Mad how your only options when trying to sleep in this heat is leave the window open and prob get eaten alive by moths or else leave window closed and sleep in the nip but sweat loads and potentially be stuck outside naked + embarrassed if you’re kidnapped or the gaf goes on fire

What about the cup of tea??
— Orla (@orlabaz) June 27, 2018
And what will we do for the dinner?
Panic as mothers across Ireland declare it's 'too hot to be cooking' and insist on serving 'salads' of rolled up ham, coleslaw and boiled eggs
