If there’s one thing that’s zero craic at the moment, it’s the Irish weather.
The wait for Spring has been long and cold, and with snow forecasted for some parts of the country this Easter Sunday it seems we have another while to wait.
Well, Met Éireann forecaster Joanna Donnelly thought she’d lighten the mood a little with a very bright outlook posted to Twitter.
She wrote: ‘So after a hard day at the office I can happily forecast a long hot summer on the charts as the jet stream gets set to head north while taking on a distinctly omega shape. Happy Easter!’

Of course, she’s only having us on – but that hasn’t stopped some Twitter users from getting excited.
