The Romans had given Ireland the Latin name Hibernia or "the wintry land". As a matter of fact, winters in Ireland are mild and it seldom gets sub-zero. Nonetheless, it does feel cold quite often and cyclists with a woolly hat aren't rare.
I took this photo off Pearse Street on 25 April 2012. This year the winter has lingered until mid-May, thus I could spot this lovely combination of a turquoise hat and a black helmet in this time of the year.
