For the day that's in it...

Are you currently doing outdoorsy stuff on this lovely day? By outdoorsy stuff, we mean drinking cans on your patio.

Well, you're not alone. It seems that everyone is in a bag of cans kind of mood today, even government ministers.

Dublin North West TD Noel Rock is down at the testing of the new Luas Cross City line, which have been ongoing all day on Saturday.

Of course, to witness the day the new Luas line gets its first run out, Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross is also in attendance at the testing.

Now, it wouldn't be a day in the Irish sun without somebody being in possession a can and it seems that man is Shane Ross.

Noel Rock tweeted a photo that will surely be played on Reeling in the Years in time to come.

As Rock puts it, "It is a day for it to be fair. Bag of cans on the tram."

But of course, Shane Ross is well aware of the rules regarding drinking in a public, with an open container of alcohol generally classified as public drinking.

Ross didn't bring the can himself, it was presented to him by one of the workers on the Luas line to celebrate linking the north and the south of Dublin, and rather than risking a nasty fine and setting a bad example, Ross didn't open his beverage in public.

What he did with the can when he left might be a different story though...*

*This is all speculation at this pint point
