A second earthquake of magnitude 2.4 was also recorded in Donegal on April 7, around the Killybegs area.
Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Brendan O’Donoghue explained that Donegal is situated along the boundary of an ancient collision between two ancient continents.
He said the “cracks would still be in the Earth’s crust” and these events are the releases of small amounts of energy….
Or ‘they’ are dynamiting ‘things’ underground.
We may never know.

I have a colleague flying to Nepal as part of the international aid response to the earthquake. His plane is currently circling south of Kathmandu as the congestion delays flights – he will land 3 hours late, by the look of things. I just took a quick screen grab off flightradar24.com I thought you might find interesting.
Kathmandu airport is struggling to cope with the sheer volume of flights in and out. Slightly larger than Knock airport [Co Mayo], it has not the parking areas nor the cargo facilities that it needs. So even as the needs are high, the ability to actually respond is limited by size. It’s a bit like an ambulance trying to get to an accident through a car choked street. Anyway, if anyone wants to know how they can assist, I suggest the excellent Dóchas website HowYouCanHelp.ie which lists which Irish agencies that are responding.
Earlier: Over Nepal
Drone footage taken yesterday over the earthquake zone in Kathmandu, Nepal.
“There were reports of a light Earthquake tremor off the Wexford Coast last night at 8.45pm..These reports were later confirmed by several people who felt the tremor.
The Irish Seismic Sensors don’t show any sign of Earthquake but Welsh Coast Sensor at Pembrokeshire shows it:”
