Connacht folk are obsessed with the weather

A recent survey by Yakult has revealed that almost two thirds of Connacht people are absorbed with the weather, a subject on most people’s minds and lips, ahead of food, fashion, social media, and all-important health. Yakult’s survey found that while 75 per cent of those living in Connacht regard health as their number one priority in terms of happiness, ahead of friends, money and careers, overall wellbeing is not something they give much thought to on a daily basis.
