Despite the wet weather, many Irish families have still enjoyed the great outdoors this summer.Irish online retailer, PuddleDucks.ie has had a busy summer kitting out families with a combination of waterproofs and wetsuits. Their sales have shown an increase of over 30% from last summer. Cork-based PuddleDucks specialise in outdoor wear for children. With so many families choosing to holiday in Ireland this year, along with the worst summer weather for 26 years1, they have been busy all summer with online orders from all corners of Ireland. Suzanne Kingston, owner of PuddleDucks.ie commented “Our customers were determined to make the most of the school holidays and not be put off by the weather. Parents came to us to get wetsuits for warmer days at the beach and waterproofs for the rainy days, meaning their children were able to spend most of the summer outdoors. As they say in Sweden – where all of our waterproofs come from – there’s no such thing as bad weather, just unsuitable clothing!”
