That was around 6-15 pm I went after it for a few miles and at one stage it formed a funnell and I could see it turning but due to torrential rain I could not film it

Got caught under this at salthill. Lightning was ferocious. Didn't stop a bunch of clowns trying to impress some girls by jumping around on the diving tower.

If storms and waves don't stop them a little bit of electricity won't

I followed it as far as Barna and it formed a funnel but never dropped to the ground, I could see it turning but due to the torrential rain I could not take a picture, but it was exciting to see.

Wall clouds are basically the location of strongest updraft within the CB tower.
They're formed when some rain-cooled air is pulled upward, along with the more buoyant air. The rain-cooled air is very humid, when its lifted it quickly saturates to form the lowered cloud base. Nearly always in a rain free area too. Its when these begin to rotate (which Aerohead said he saw a signs of ) then its becomes a mesocylone.
