Q1: Did I just hear Mary Wilson talking about the certainty of "a Spring election."?

Q2: Is the last week of January Spring already?

Q3: Or does she know something the rest of us don't?
Spring is offically the 1st of February, however with the economic winter on the way it may not arrive for another 10 years :)

By some measures, Spring means anywhere from March 21st until June 21st...
There are two calendars that could be referred to here. The meteorological calendar has spring starting March 1. The Irish calendar is based around CELTIC religion and the feast of IMBOLG on Feb 1st marks the start of spring. (imbolg literallymeans that the proverbial spring lambs are in the sheeps belly).

The sun says spring starts in Feb.

So do flowering bulbs and much of the plants, who take their cue from the sun and many animals too.

The weather doesn't agree so for Met Eireann says it doesn't begin until March.
