Drogheda is the driest place in Ireland
The lowest rainfall in Ireland in the past year was recorded at Drogheda, Co. Louth where total rainfall for 1913 reached just under 28 inches. By contrast, the highest rainfall recorded in Ireland was at Caragh Lake in Co. Kerry, where it exceeded 87 inches in the course of the year.
The wide disparity of rainfall illustrates once again the great difference in precipitation between the south-west of Ireland and the east coast. All of the lowest recordings of rainfall were at locations along the east coast, while all of the highest were in the south and west of the country.
