ICON-EU can over-do the gusts but Ciara could leave her mark:

Or better still put it on facebook so people can comment to each of their individual friend with the obligatory 'You ok?' because something happened within a 500km radius of where they live

the opening event for Galway 2020 is on in the Swamp just down the road.

Big stages being erected and thousands expected to be in attendance...

Could be chaotic down there in the evening if the weather reports are true

It all depends on Black head though as I've seen the waves actually surge so high it goes over the headland and a huge spray or splash covers cars.
You've to time the set of waves and then drive through, there's usually a set of 5 to 7 then it drops off for maybe 10 minutes then whomph again.

The biggest waves will be around Doolin and the cliffs, further down then it could be worth checking out the slabs near Doonbeg.
A wave they call Rileys it's some show, its a big long stretch of flat rock and the waves break over it, coming up from deep water over the shelf.

But I advise caution, go wave watching at your own risk and knowing a bit about water craft is always an advantage but nobody can predict the mood of the ocean.

There's always a rogue wave which doubles the sizes of the average one.
That sounds class nthclare. The Doolin cliff walk is magical during a storm.

I remember fishing for mackerel at the Bridges of Ross - I'd imagine they would have a great view of the storm too.

If you want to see for real the storm potential around the Bridges of Ross and Castle Point on the loop head go on YouTube and search for Ryan's Daughter storm scene.

It took a year to get the perfect storm added to the movie.

David Lean and his team scoured the coast line lookin for the perfect location for that scene.

The location of the scene is Castle Point and The Bridges of Ross on the Loop Head Peninsula in Clare.

The first sequence is Castle Point, better known as Dunlikcky.

The second is The Bridges of Ross down further south on the Loop.

You'll see the Bridges of Ross at the end of the clip a few guys running about on top of the cliff.

Way before cgi etc people had to be more creative and in touch with reality than they are today.

This is a hardcore storm scene.

Inconsiderate Ciara. That’s what she’ll be known as.
