Storm Christine rocks Ireland’s coast

Photos: The latest in a series of extreme winter storms to hit Ireland, Christine has sent up huge waves battering the coast.

On 6 January 2014, the 175th anniversary of the legendary Night Of the Big Wind in Ireland, #stormChristine caused (and is still causing at time of writing) extensive damages along much of the coast of Ireland. Images of huge waves were shared across Twitter; here are some of the most dramatic.

Wow, it looks WILD out there! Hope there won’t be extensive damages, especially from the pets on the couch 😉

I’m certainly on the couch, Satu, but tis only 4 dogs inside, no horses 😀

Glad you are not out there taking photos!

No way- going down to the river for photos was the extent for me while it is so very wild out 😉

Oh my gosh, Susan, these photos are so powerful and intense! My Golden Retriever, Phoenix, would think he was in an alternate dimension if there was a horse on his couch ha, ha! 🙂

I Think our 4 dogs would feel the same 🙂
Yes, that storm was wild & the pics captivating! Now is the clean up and the costs of the damage is huge. Back to reality and the awe of the storm is turning to uggh the cleanup!
