    Link below to news story today of 'explosion' last night in north Co. Dublin.

    www.rte.ie/news/2007/0702/rush.html Sorry - can't get link to work - you may have to copy and paste :lol:

    'Explosion' put down to 'freak waether' conditions (not connected - directly anyway - to any thunderstorm activity).

    Any ideas or thoughts what that might be about?

    " The fire service says a helicopter search was carried out overnight but nothing was found. "

    surely they cant misplace an entire helicopter ?

    No lightning in the area at the time or close by in fact.It appears to be a methane explosion of some description as it was also heard in Swords,co Dublin too about 6-7miles away.There is a tight lid on this for some reason.

    I think its very nice, when we humans actually don't know what the answer is for something as simple as a loud bang. At last the unknown, we are not perfect ;)

    There was a very loud explosion up here a couple of weeks back, turned out to be kids with an industrial firework on a nearby car park.
