    Rain on your wedding day isn't ironic it's just slightly unfortunate

    Yup.
    No situation in that song is ironic, just a load of unfortunate coincidences, which is actually kinda ironic.

    Note to OP: Whatever you post, there will always be people on this forum who will say it is not ironic, even when it is. Or they will agree that it is ironic when in fact it is not. There are some perculiar understandings of the word ironic.

    Saying that, neither of the pics posted so far are ironic. :p

    in most parts of the country it's statistically likely

    http://www.met.ie/climate-ireland/rainfall.asp
    The general impression is that it rains quite a lot of the time in Ireland, but two out of three hourly observations will not report any measurable rainfall. The average number of wet days (days 1mm or more of rain) ranges from about 150 days a year along the east and south east coasts, to about 225 days a year in parts of the west.
    ...
    A 30 year running mean of the national annual rainfall indicated an increase in average national rainfall of approximately 70mm over the last two decades.
    ie. one out of three hourly observations will report measurable rainfall.

    and here are the measurements for horizontal rain http://www.met.ie/climate-ireland/Driving%20Rain%20Index.pdf


    Alanis Morissette's song is Ironic , because it's not really that Ironic.
