Though the + # "IST" was correct, the "Irish Summer Time" appears to have been an + # error, as Ireland's Standard Time (Amendment) Act, 1971 states that + # standard time in Ireland remains at UT +01 and is observed in + # summer, and that Greenwich mean time is observed in winter. (Thanks + # to Derick Rethans for pointing out the error.) That is, when + # Ireland amended the 1968 act that established UT +01 as Irish + # Standard Time, it left standard time unchanged and established GMT + # as a negative daylight saving time in winter.
