It’s officially that time of year again! Yes, the times are changing and clocks go forward by one hour at 1AM on Sunday, 28th March. Most (if not all) electronic devices should automatically adjust, but don’t forget to set your wall clocks, VCRs, car clocks and microwaves before going to bed!

The Minister for Justice, Helen McEntee TD, would like to remind the general public that “summer time” will commence at 1.00 am on Sunday 28 March 2021. Clocks and watches should be put forward one hour at that time.

Minister McEntee said:

This year, more than ever, we are all keen to put the short days and dark evenings of winter behind us. The clocks moving forward marks the point when we can move on from winter and look towards summer.

The winter of 2020-2021 has been the hardest in living memory, but the summer of 2021 will be one of hope, as we begin to overcome Covid-19, re-open our society and economy and move on with our lives.

Summer time will end at 1.00 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time on Sunday 24 October 2021.
