Here's How Sunbathing In The Nip Could Land You Up To 6 Months In Jail

Here's How Sunbathing In The Nip Could Land You Up To 6 Months In Jail

An Irish sunbathing law actually exists. The temperature is set to rise to 28 degrees by lunchtime today. If you plan on getting your kit off you might want to think twice - even if you're in your back garden.

Under Section 18 of the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act (1990) “any person who commits, in public, any act in such a way as to offend modesty or cause scandal or injure the morals of the community shall be guilty. The absolute scandal of it all. Hashtag 1950s Ireland anyone?

If that's not bad enough, fail to follow the law and you'll get a hefty fine or prison sentence. “The person may receive a fine of up to €634.87 or six months imprisonment”. Gardai said it's best to be "discreet" if you're trying to top up your tan. Cue awkward clothes shuffle.

It's best not to strip off in public places so, just in case you needed reminding. Somebody should probably tell that fella who jumped into the Canal on Saturday.
