Did you hear any thunder or lightning last night? Here’s a look at every lightning strike that hit Ireland over the past 24-hours.

The guys over at Irish Weather News recently tweeted out this radar image featuring every lightning strike that struck over a 24-hour period right up to 9 o’clock this morning.

Met Éireann has warned of localised flooding around the south and mid-west this morning following the night of heavy rain and they’re also forecasting more rain for tonight. Great

Twitter user James K recently tweeted out the following picture of a lightning strike in Cork and he said: ‘I was waiting for a knock on the door from The Undertaker last night’.

Here’s a more recent image sent into us from JOE reader Alan O’Reilly.
