I was surprised to find the highest gust recorded in Ireland happened at Kilkeel County Down in January 1974, 200kph. There's very little information about it. The highest gust in the Republic occurred at Malin head but this eclipses that. I thought the highest gust would have been in Donegal or Mayo.
Can anyone give some detail about this storm, how it played out and what the gusts were in the rest of the country from it? Cheers
