When last was the weather this nice in Ireland? It’s been sunny and nearly cloudless, with temperatures in the west nearing the 80s (or in the 20s on the Celsius side of things), rivaling the sun in the Mediterranean.

Okay, so there are a few showers on the forecast. But the weather is GORGEOUS right now! And that's something worth celebrating.

Ever notice how every time there's a snow storm or torrential rain, the internet buzzes with dramatic shots of flooding and gloomy photos of snowed-in streets?

Well now we want all of your photos of Ireland basking in the heat wave, of you and your friends having fun in the sun.

Send your best pics celebrating the start of summer to submit@irishcentral.com or post them on Twitter with #ICSummer.
