The Youghal Tornado

Recommended Posts

The town of Youghal in Co Cork had a rude awakening on February 13th, 1995.

Just after 7 a.m. there was a very heavy shower of hail, which in turn spawned a small tornado, about 10 feet in diameter, which swept right through the centre of the town. Small it may have been, but it did its share of damage.

A particularly well documented tornado occurred in Youghal on August 8th 1967. Unfortunately the only article I can find on it is with Highbeam Research so no access.

The Irish Times has an article on the 1995 event on the tenth anniverary but you have to subscribe and it's not cheap.
