I noticed when watching a live TV broadcast between London and Dublin and in London it was pitch dark and in Dublin the sun was still going down.

I phoned someone in Dublin when it just got dark before and asked if the sun was up and it had not got dark in Dublin yet.

Officially Dublin and London are the same time however London is not far from Paris and Paris, France is 1hour ahead of Ireland.

Is Ireland un-officially around 15-45 minutes behind London?
