WHO DOESN’T LOVE a bit of lightning?

It’s not a very common occurrence here in Ireland, but when we hear that roll of thunder we all do that same glance out the window and have that gleeful childish grin on our faces.

Yesterday, thunder and lightning was reported in a number of areas of the country. Just look at all lightening strikes over Ireland yesterday.
