The lightning map isn't pinpoint accurate and those two closest strikes are only about 100m and 200m away from the mast, they almost certainly hit it.

Was going to post the same.. that's a circa 120m mast on top of a 750m mountain so I'd be almost certain those strikes were on the mast rather than nearby.

Open Street Maps are amazing in many ways, but every peak in the Dublin/Wicklow mountains are shown as about 50m higher than they actually are. Not sure why this is, but probably due to low resolution heightmap data of the area.

Small chance of a bit of sporadic lightning today , more so perhaps in Atlantic coastal counties. Cold air aloft over the relatively warm seas might get enough convection going becoming briefly electrified.

Hail shower just went through here near Tralee.

Days like today you'd miss the rainfall radar.

My sister was on the EK163 flight from Dubai and it was hit by that strike.
She said between the bang and the flash it frightened the life out the people onboard.

Lightning for the last couple of hours off the NW, wonder will some come close to or over land.

Met Eireann mentioning it ' Rain will clear eastwards to scattered showers tonight with the risk of hail and sleet on northern hills. Some of the showers will be heavy and blustery across the west and northwest later, with the ongoing risk of hail and lightning

Two lightning strikes in the last 5 minutes or so in Mayo. Thunder seemed to come a good bit after.
