Saw two excellent fork lightning strikes a couple of minutes apart from Swords around 6pm. Happened to be looking in exactly the right direction both times

Hail shower at 17:50. I went out the back garden and the brightest flash and instant bang and crackling as a bolt flew right over my head. Frightened the ****e out of me. My boys came running downstairs because they seen the flash. Struck a tree stake 30m from the house.

What's your location? That's the exact time of the two big strikes near Swords!
