    Went to Malin Head in the early hours. Absolutely insane! Recorded a sustained windspeed of approx 50mph and highest gust I recorded while there was 60mph. Standing up at the Radio Tower was almost impossible without the help of some of the abandoned buildings up there.
    On my way back down into Malin Head I had to slam my breaks on, but couldn't avoid a downed phoneline or electric line. Managed to slap right off the roof.
    Heading back in a homeward direction between Malin Town and Carndonagh there was a downed electric line covering the road. Had to ring the police and notify them of it as it was just over a slight crest.
