Do I really need sunglasses in Ireland?

The Ultraviolet rays of the sun are deadly little blighters. Not only can they penetrate our skin and make an unrighteous mess of it, they can also fry the cells right off of our poor little eyes, burning their life away. Long-term exposure to UV light can really do some damage, increasing the risk of cataracts, corneal damage, and age-related macular degeneration, ultimately leading to blindness.

    Crann our way of helping

    "I know we all have been reading about the bushfires in Australia at the minute and honestly, it really is hard to actually imagine until you see the flames or see the aftermath.
