How To Say – It’s Raining in Irish (VIDEO)

Thinking of visiting Ireland? You’d better get some sun-cream and… an umbrella. Yes, the Irish weather is unpredictable so that’s why it would be better to prepare before you arrive in Ireland. 

Even if the Sun is shining bright, that doesn’t mean rain clouds aren’t just around the corner. When you’re admiring the landscapes or taking in the fresh air of the Irish countryside, make sure you have an umbrella close by, you know – just in case.
