Well this one snuck up while we were all focused on the snow charts, I guess!

Fairly wild and gusty in Kerry already, massive hail and rain showers sweeping through, winds picking up all morning . Looks like 3 nights of broken sleep in a row coming up.

Some interesting points there from Liam Dutton, but a bit surprising he chose to use social media to show his exasperation.

You should see some of his tweets, he's an absolute legend, there needs to be more people like him.
