Almanac ...

Rooster Call :


Looks like being a wet, windy and mild day today at Carrowcrory. Errands first then back indoors, some newsletter and articles catch up. That's ok after a beautiful out and about day yesterday.

Are you thinking about and making arrangements for Brighid's Day and Imbolc yet?

Weather :

Going to 11C, 52F today, that's warm for January here. Good for keeping fuel burning down though. After next weekend still looks like we are sinking into a cold spell, and some of those beautiful crispy sunny days too. Looks like earliest snow chance is January 14th, then cold with snowing from time to time, lasting until after Brighid's Day and Imbolc. 


Moon :

94%  waning moon ....

Travel To Ireland :

Good news for USA people coming to Ireland this year, best exchange rate since 2002, at 1.2 dollars per euro, about 15% lower cost than last year, though the surge in advance bookings has caused hotels and B&Bs to put their prices up between 10% and 20%, especially along the Wild Atlantic Way and in Dublin and Galway. With shrewd investigation you can get great deals, though.
