Protect Yourself Against the Elements

natureRain and wind – two constant companions in the outdoors of Ireland. If you’re keen on getting out this summer, make sure that you’re protected against the elements

Protect your Face!

Over the summer, everyone knows to use some sun protection to prevent against sunburn and those nasty UV rays. But you still need protection from the sun on overcast days also. We recommend taking a small bottle of sun cream on hikes and bike rides, and apply as necessary. UV glasses will protect your eyes and remove glare from your vision on days with changeable weather.

It’s not just the sun your face needs protecting from though – wind  can cause significant damage as well – leading to dry, chapped or burned skin. For keen hikers and walkers using clothing over exposed areas of your face will help prevent damage.

If you’re going to be exploring in hotter climes, do make sure that you take plenty of water during the day, and have a hat to prevent against sunstroke.

Upper Body Protection

The elements can also damage skin on the upper body while walking and especially cycling. Again, we recommend appropriate sun cream at all times, and wearing a breathable material that allows moisture out, but not in, keeping you cool and dry.

Two piece suits start at €99.95 and fits very nicely at a budget price, – it’s amazing how the track-suited, football jersey children are transformed into smart young boys with the new suit shirt & tie!

There are a number of different styles in suits at the moment. For those with a keener fashion eye the suit with the decorative trim on the lapels & pockets is a definite must have.

This year there is quite a strong colour palette in boys shirts , these really liven up the suits and look good on the boys also, and as they are now all wearing bright colours in their football boots it isn’t quite as hard to persuade them to try on the pinks , purples & teals that are in this year.
