Thunder getting louder here (NE Galway) but no rain and just the odd gust.

Passed over in a short blaze of glory with intense hail and thunder. House is shaking as I type this from a deep, distant boom. Lightning less frequent now.

Good to see some proper winter weather at last! (even though it is spring now)

Whereabouts JD? rumbles turned to direct overheaders here but booming away in the distance again now. Lightning not as near but seems to be picking up in frequency again.

Thunder and lightning here near Athenry, woken me from my slumber. Loud cracks, frequent flashes.

Holy Moley... woke about 15 mins ago as I thought aomeothing was thrown against one side of my house.. the last time I heard thunder and lightning so loud and in such quick succession (with the heaviest rain!) was when I lived in Western Australia! I’m in Spiddal Village. It seems to have passed now.
