These are signs of rain.
If a cloud connects Ballyfin mountains with the horizon at sunrise. A halo round the moon. Swallows flying low. A dog eating grass. A cat lying with his back to the fire. A lot of cows in a field. Blue flames in a fire. A cock crowing. Hear the Hens pecking themselves. The cricket chirping on the hearth. A cement damp floor When corns are painful. People are sleepy in the daytime. A rainbow in the morning.
