    Don't tell me, it's known as the Irish Riviera.

Scattered all along are historic towns and quaint old villages that add to the scenic splendour. Aptly named The Irish Riviera, the coastline south of Cork city is the mildest region in Ireland. The warm waters of the Gulf Stream sustain an almost subtropical climate. Exotic plants and trees abound in sheltered gardens, and on a sunny day there is definitely a Mediterranean feel to these seascapes.

    Anyway, I thought you didn't want to be in the EU? The Republic is probably about as pro-EU as it gets.

    I don't remember that being the referendum question.

    As I recall the question was "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?". It doesn't mention me or what I personally wish to do.

    Well she's not dead so that's the first option discounted.

    Your missus must think you're a clueless fuqwit, everyone else does.

    Mediterranean is pushing it but the rest is true. Feeling warm and being warm aren't the same to people. Unlike potatoes and daffodils

    It isn't the temperature that's the problem. It definitely doesn't get as cold down here in the winter. But the wind and rain make it far from a pleasant climate. Although, as you say, not a problem for potatoes and daffodils, or moles!

    I haven't lived through Cornish winters for a long time, having grown up in SW Cornwall - I've visited in the winter but a week of drizzle is not the same as 3-4 months. I think last time I was there it was a beautiful day - beach weather in November - but they told me it was the first day it hadn't rained for 17 days!

    Sounds about right. A handful of calm, dry days per month in winter (if you're lucky!). It definitely feels like it's got worse in the past 10 years.
