Carlow Weather tweetz:

Two planes playing X and O in the Sky 😁 plenty of bright spells over Carlow but cloud increasing from the West as winds start to ease off here.

    my takeaway from this is that Ophelia wasn’t that bad and that we had a Storm Bawbag in 2011 and nobody told me.

      Isn’t the naming of Irish and UK storms a recent (and rather silly) innovation? I have no idea where the names of the older storms came from; but I presume they are wholly unofficial.
