Cathal Nolan disappeared?

Hi folks,
Just wondering if anyone knows what happened to Cathal Nolan and his social media sites Ireland’s Weather Channel? His site used to be Midlands Weather Channel. He was around until February but seems to have vanished around then.

It's not like him to step out of the limelight without good reason. His most recent FB post was about fashion on March 23rd, and several of his sheep followers asked where were the weather updates, but he ignored them. Maybe he finally came to his senses and realised he's a spoofer.

I think he's involved with the Social Democrats; might be they are reining in their flakier members social media activities.

Yes, purple warnings for everything and anything. Pure clickbait

IWC was all just a publicity stunt to get his name out there.

Yeah I’d summarise it that way too

Seems he was using the forecasts more for publicity purposes than genuine interest ...

Cathal was on The Last Word today talking about the upcoming 'mini heatwave' this weekend. He's back!

I see he is now planning on a €20 fee for people to subscribe to a detailed whatsapp group forecast.

Plenty unhappy about it but plenty planning on paying the €20, fools and their money eh. Must be the thought of purple warnings enticing them.
If only there were free forecasts online people could avail of.

Ha never going to happen. You think the state are going to fund a professional well funded meteorological service and give out free weather forecasts.....

Ohh... oh wait.

Fools are their money.

That should be reported to the Gardaí as attempted fraud.

As a local politician I assume that any moneys made from this business venture will be declared for tax purposes. I'm sure he's organised all that already...
