funny, I slept right through.

the wonders of double glazing eh!

liked the map of the strikes (thanks for that bkehoe), 6 a minute sounds like a lot, but I guess we don't see nearly all of them from one location.

Yeah we got it here too in Wicklow, woke me up around 4 or 5.
T'was like a bombing raid and is going to be hanging around the East Coast!

If you have a look here

The yellow dots on that map represent recent lightning strikes in the Irish sea from what appears to be a mass of connected storms.
They appear to be heading straight for Dublin, Louth Meath and Wicklow.

So stand by for more action

Brendan also has a lightning dector set up which he has linke to above, but the map seems to be missing off it.
