Cold air spreading aloft tonight after the cold front into tomorrow and the passage of troughs giving instability along with diurnal heating tomorrow afternoon will give some heavy showers and some might contain hail and a few sporadic showers may become electrified although there is low shear and lapse rates available. Pulse type brief thunder storms if any. Later Sunday evening the NW/ N might see some heavy showers and again some might have hail and become electrified.

Extremely potent cell just about or else just has hit land west of Galway city. I would guess around Spiddal or possibly just east of it.

As well as that potent shower around Spiddal, there looks to be a very active squall like feature developing, hitting much of the Clare coast imminently and may well affect Galway City shortly however the recent heavy shower west of the city may leave the city somewhat in a less wet location than further south. This may change in the coming minutes though.

If the squall I've just had in North kildare is in any way as strong when it arrives in Dublin imminently, we'll likely be getting a good few reports here. I reckon some tree branches and limbs were probably broken in the surrounding areas. Was really very very fierce.
