Ireland is on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and, in accordance with daylight saving, clocks are put forward one hour mid-March and back one hour at the end of October.
During summer it stays light until as late as 11pm but by mid-December it can be dark by 4pm.
"Hi Martin - I wanted to let you know how much you were appreciated by our group on our trip through Ireland. I count it as a big blessing that I found you through the internet. It is a unanimous consensus that you were the perfect person to transport us along those ancient highways. Such courage in spending two weeks in a van with eleven women!
