Actually you would.

A category 5 hurricane in it's very nature would be so big that if it hit Kerry then it would also hit Dublin soon afterwards in which case you would care. Even if it downgraded to a 3 or 4 by the time hit Dublin it would still be strong enough to blow the last of your clearly diminishing social skills out the window

Don't feed the troll guys. He has a history of bans for trolling, and he will get another one if he posts like that here again.

Castleisland may have been hit by a mini tornado today

It seems Castleisland may have been hit by a mini tornado today. Locals say the severe weather at lunchtime lead to fallen trees and roof slates, and other damage. Meteorologist with Met Eireann, Joanna Donnolly says the thunderstorms and very significant showers could possibly have been a mini tornado.

I'm pretty sure a meteorologist wouldn't have said that as it doesn't make any sense, unless the journalist's magic misquote dust was sprinkled over what she said. She probably said "they could have spawned a tornado" - that would make sense.

It hit near new housing estate across from browns agri not in town center
Blew down power lines on scart road and heard of hail breaking a car rear window.
I did not see it but spoke to people who did and I was caught in very large heavy hail a few miles away at the time.
All cars had lights on as it got very dark almost dusk at arount 1.30pm when hail stopped it brightened up again.

What information is needed for a tornado sighting in Ireland to be validated officially?
