Have you ever been so lucky and been able to escape out to Dún Laoghaire on a sunny day?

Yes, yes you have. Because that's where all of Dublin migrates to once they catch a whiff of sunshine.

And once out there, you're pretty much bound to catch a glimpse of certain things. For example...

1. 40,000 teenagers

2. 653 sunburnt shoulders

3. A mortifyingly long queue for Scrumdiddly's

4. 17 fallen ice-creams

God bless them.
