Would those rainfall totals be more or less than your average? 15km north of Oak Park here, total rainfall for 2021 just strong of 650mm. It's always drier here, Oak Park seems to get rain off the Rossmore hills. Lots of mini-droughts here during the summer but nothing as severe as 2018. Only for a wet spell towards the end of May it would have been a different story.

we were 1281 from our met eireann guage.an odd year we might have a bit less rain than that .most are wetter than above, 2020 we had 1528mm.
those figures for other places I took off met eireann website.
in general most places seem to have a drier yr last year.
It gives the long term average for each area on the website aswell.
the NW always along with parts of kerry and maybe bits of cork have more rainfall in general

Yes, a drier year on average for the country overall. I'd take the same again for 2022.
Very useful to have a Met Eireann rainfall gauge on you're farm, they are the gold standard. From what I can see there's huge regional variation in rainfall over short distances so unless you're located very close to one it's more accurate to measure your own.

Good shot of frost out this morning. Didn't think it was as bad till it got brighter
True that. I was foddering at 6.30am and you'd feel it but couldn't really see it. Totally opposite of yesterday morning - at 6.30am, you could see the lines of frost along the ditches even though it was still dark.
