Might be worth contacting Met Eireann directly if you were in a position to take readings every day. They supply and install the equipment, namely the metal gauge, the measuring beaker and the report cards which are freepost back to Dublin every month.

Interestingly there is a station out on Innishboffin

Any update on this? May was another very dry month alongside some unusually dry months in the past year {May 2018, June 2018, July 2018, January 2019, February 2019}. June wasn't very wet but relatively wetter than average and so far, July is looking quite dry.

2. Sep 2014 - 22.9mm
3. Jun 2018 - 27.4mm
4. Mar 2012 - 29.3mm
5. Mar 2011 - 40.2mm
6. May 2019 - 40.6mm
7. Jun 2010 - 42.4mm
8. Jun 2015 - 44.4mm

To continue from the above, here's the monthly rainfall anomalies (using the same 11-station grid) for the Republic of Ireland from September 2015 to June 2019. The unusually dry weather of late 2016/early 2017 and the Summer 2018 drought very evident here.
