I can speak now though!
Good night so?

My 160GB iPod classic that I've used virtually every day for the past 8 years appears to have died and I am genuinely heartbroken. It's honestly the perfect device for how I like to listen to podcasts and music and given the size of my library. And it's been discontinued by Apple so I can't even replace it without paying an exorbitant amount.

CURSE YOU MECHANICAL HARD DRIVES! CURSE YOU TO HELL!

I believe there are mods to replace it with SSD(not exactly SSDs) but similar!

Trees down all over Limerick, but I haven't heard any reports yet of major damage.

There is news of a death in County Waterford already though.

People still swimming in the ocean off Salthill Prom outside Galway. Mad bastards.

3 deaths reported now I believe, two trees falling on cars and one man trying to clear a fallen tree with a chainsaw.

We got off lightly here. Bad gusts between 10:30-12:00 and again between 1:00-2:30, but it's completely died down now. One or two trees down around the farm, but no major damage, power stayed on, so we're lucky.

I think by and large it was overblown (pun not intended) in terms of the panic inland. I've been saying for a few days that really it's only the coasts that would get badly hit. Still, better safe than sorry at the end of the day.

Keep yerselves safe.

The house is still being battered since about 12pm and from around 1pm until before 3pm it felt more like an earthquake with the shakes.. Still wouldn't fancy trying to stand out there now but it's eased a lot
I've heard people saying it was all over hyped and maybe it was in your area.. But here with electricity gone most the day, phone masts down, trees or live wires on most roads and a fatality. We definitely experienced a hurricane

I didn't notice much, but my ward is in the middle of the hospital so I was fairly buffered from it. (TLDR, was in hospital Sunday - Tuesday, and managed to get out before grad so I could graduate!)

Lads im genuinely shocked and saddened by Dolores death. Literally spending the week. Mourning.

Never knew this woman but I guess listening to her voice and their band always being a favourite of mine.

Always made a connection with the Cranberries and limerick because when I came to Ireland they were on the radio in fashion. Driving through the streets of Limerick listening to her voice on the radio just gives me happy memories. When I found out that she owned live 95 out a smile on my face cause I always listened to that station still do. They were the first to play some of her music when she went solo. My favourite being Ordinary day by Delores, another close connection through my teenage years.

Then my dad told me the story of how he shook hands with her and speaks about how pleasant she was to meet for a star. Just down to earth doing the cleaning.

They brought out their acoustic album there last year and it's wonderful to listen to. Saddened well never hear her voice again.

I know hundreds of musicians die. But this one was a bit closer to home literally...
