We had a weather warning for rain the other day in Kilkenny and not much fell.
The rain yesterday and last night was the heaviest rain in months, around 15mm to 20mm fell.

Already 6mm in the gauge this morning to start off August. Hope this isn’t the start of another soggy month.

The 187.9mm for Newport in July coupled with the 164.5mm for June has brought it up to 352mm for the Summer so far.

Even with an exceptionally dry April & May Newport has still recorded 26.7% more rainfall than this time last year at 1093.3mm.

I'm still waiting to see where Dunsany finished up for July, Met Eireann's page has been stuck on 27th of July for nearly a week and doesn't appear to have updated since. No doubt the total for July is well north of 100mm.

Kilkenny was probably one of the driest places in the country for July, nothing exceptional in terms of rainfall.
I think the hills surrounding the county did a blocking job for a lot of the rain.

You had 130.9mm which would make it your wettest July since 2009 (163.4mm).
