Is it not preferable to have it at sea level? Sligo airport maybe.

They'll probably go to put one on Forth Mountain or some spot only to have it opposed by nimbys.
What kind of a question is that? Tell you what let's have one radar in Shannon and be done with it after all that works brilliantly doesn't it?

Why ? Surely the higher the better. Less ground interference.

You suggest the South East is the poor relation. I'm asking how so?

Vested interests: The old radar always showed a particular major factory emissions. Wonder why they got rid of it?

I bet that will prove to be optimistic.

Yep, appears to be missing a lot of the west coast, as usual.

Same happened a couple of weeks ago on the new ME site. The old one is working fine.

It seems the Rainfall radar page on Met.ie is gone wonky. Up until last night it was missing images for up to 90 minutes at a time. Since last night it is missing feeds from Shannon and Dublin airports at the moment with no coverage in the South West. But it is updating regularly. The north and east are covered by Belfast and Wales. The Rainfall Radar page on netweather.tv are still receiving feeds from both Irish airports.
Edit The archive.met.ie are covering Shannon and Dublin Radar feeds.
