    Yes. The PHP date() function has the format specifier I which yields

             "1 if Daylight Saving Time, 0 otherwise",
    and also "1 si está en horario de verano, 0 si no" in Spanish.

    I am sure that nobody in Ireland would ever say "daylight-saving time"
    when they meant winter time, so that the (new meaning of the) tzdb 
dst bit
    is of no use for PHP.
