    • Pouring rain is apparently a big part of Irish experience although we seemed to have hit the country during an amazingly dry October – I purchased a pair of rain pants especially so I could tramp around in the rain and never got to wear them. It looks as if Ireland hasn’t got caught up in the hot weather that’s attacking most of the northern hemisphere this summer so it might be time to go back and bring those rain pants with me!
