Lowest minimum temperature recording for Winter 2018/19

Ok guys just for a bit of fun. During this dull and damp month ahead.
Try and guess the lowest temperature recording for this winter (Dec,Jan and Feb) the place ( an official Met Eireann site) and date.
Closing date 30th of November.
1 pt for temp
2 pts for place
3 pts for date.

I'm going -13.5 _Mullingar_Jan 6th.

Enjoy🌨️

I will put in a guess later, but just FYI, there has been a winter forecast contest for the past ten winters that includes this variable (lowest temperature, but not the date or location though). That will make an appearance at the usual time, late November. But this will be a fun thread to expand on that aspect. Watch for the winter forecast contest thread in about two weeks.

-8.1 Mount Dillon January 11th

I find it crazy that it got down to -8c in Dublin back in February 2015... I remember the heavy frost very clearly that day.

Sorry didn't realise. This can be practice run before the main event. Always good to stretch out the legs and blow out the cobwebs first!
Some big juicey negatives coming in.
Might have to invest in huskies and sleigh,😀

Okay, I will take a wild guess at this,

-12.8 at Ballyhaise (and possibly -14 in NI) around 7 January, may be closely matched around 3-4 Feb.

This will depend on a decent snowfall in late December or first few days of January, if ground is bare it's hard to go much below -8.
