Only chance is the Canary Islands volcano and I'd say its not likely to happen in our lifetime. But incase it does, I'll be up the Killarney Mountains if happens so all's gravy baby.

Ah crap. You had to say it….
(though in fairness, this thread has a good set of links debunking the megatsunami fears, which is why I dragged it back up before the Chicken Littles started new ones)
Worth highlighting that it took a Jim Gavin sized tsunami for Dublin to win the all-Ireland!
Wales - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristol_Channel_floods,_1607 Scary because recent enough and cause not fully explained. Also a repeat could take out a few nuclear power plants.
Norway - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storegga_Slide
Canaries - https://www.freedomnewspaper.com/2021/09/19/gambia-faces-tsunami-risk-from-canaries-errupting-volcano/ - unlikely that the volcano erupting right now might trigger one, but there were big ones in the past
And there's always the possibility of a meteorite landing in the Atlantic
Have we some fella who will ring a bell when the wave is on it's way or what's the craic? I presume we have a tested emergency alert system set up on the entire mobile phone network?
I got one of them alerts when I was in New York. Someone kidnapped a child and the alert came through, I honestly thought it was a virus as the phone was acting strange in my eye at the second the alert came through with a different alert sound and was stuck on the alert till I figured out what was going on. I have honestly never received one in Ireland so it was a new experience to me.
Yes I got a test one before in US the morning I arrived I thought that was that.
I guess the pandemic really is over then ...
