It wouldn't really be Ireland if we didn't all rush towards the nearest barbecue at the first hint of sunshine, and tell all our friends to come over RIGHT THIS INSTANT before it starts to rain.

A little effort goes a long way when it comes to this style of cooking – and here are nine recipes that will help you look absolutely deadly.
