Irish weather

Rick’s favorite weather site is the UK Weather Channel (because you can look up an historic record to see what average temperatures are during the days you will travel). Just type in a town in the town/city/country field. Then, for historic data click on "climate statistics." Click here and you’ll get historic climate data for Galway.
