Shannon Radar being replaced.

    According to Met Eireann work has started at Shannon Airport to replace the rainfall radar equipment with a new modern system. I believe this work began yesterday Friday the 19th. They have set up a temporary radar station somewhere in Co. Cork with the location being undisclosed. At least it will give some coverage to the south west coast but not as good as Shannon. I suspect the radar station may be in Moorepark. The work is expected to last 3 months. It will be probably late August or early September when the new radar comes online.
