As temperatures reached to an astonishing 30°C yesterday thousands of us took to beaches across the country in disbelief and stripped down to lap up temperatures hotter than those in Rio de Janerio.

Yet, in our eagerness to get to the seaside and make the most of the dream circumstances, there were a few poor souls who got a little more than roasted beneath the blare of the sun yesterday.

Images of red-hot burned and blistering skin filtered through to Twitter and Instagram this morning as ill-prepared sun-worshipers shared photographs of their sunburn.

“In absolute agony never usually burn always just tan but by Jaysis I sizzled yesterday,” said Joanne Driver from Dublin, sharing a photograph of her angry red skin on Twitter

“The heat coming off my sunburn right now could heat a country,” said Sinead Dolan on Twitter

“Me shoulders are in bits with sunburn! That’s the end of the sun for the year now,” Vincent Galvin said.

Dubliner Roisin admitted she learned a valuable life lesson yesterday.

“Don't sit in the sun in fishnet tights again you will get sunburn on your legs in the shape of tiny squares,” she tweeted.
