Well, the reason is simple really, Garúa was recorded by two of our favourite orquestas Pedro Laurenz and Anibal Troilo so it is never far from our minds and always in our hearts as a song. Of course, it means drizzle in Spanish so it was entirely appropriate for a typical Irish summer when the sun leaves us for a little while at random for a shower of rain. As we say in Ireland when it is drizzling it is a ‘soft day’. Of course, the weather determines everything in Ireland, as the windiest country in Europe it is the land of dead umbrellas, they never last the pace. So be sure to bring a light waterproof coat with you or else you can do like we Irish do, nip into the nearest pub for a cuppa or a pint until the shower passes over. With the weather as changeable as this, you will see multiple rainbows quite often and look forward to a bit of garúa.
