Ireland will spring into summer this weekend as the clocks go forward.  

Make sure to check your clocks, phones and devices automatically change or you might end up late for Sunday plans!  

The time change happens in the early hours of Sunday, which means one hour less sleep on Saturday night. 

The “spring forward” will take place in all 27 EU states at the same time.  

The European Commission revealed a plan to abolish the time change in 2018 - but that has yet to take effect. 

The time change means we’ll be seeing darker mornings but brighter evenings.  

Do you think we should still be changing our clocks? Or should we get rid of the whole thing already?
