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 ...

Our very own Coleraine/Limavady poster has also disappeared and judgeing by his last post to the helpdesk was an all round trouble maker

Read on a different forum that he got in a bit of bodder with his issuing of weather warnings, particularly with the met office, as he was issuing warnings that contradicted there warnings for the six counties.
Something to do with code of ethics or something like that

He got sitebanned for highlighting his old account...hilarious. Weather forum will be a much better place without him.
