Gravity Waves under a Supermoon

The recent super-moon on January 1st was exceptionally bright and the effect was even enhanced by some rare clound cover in the above photo taken from Altamount by Fr. James McSweeney. []

The super-moon is so called is when the moon is at its closest to Earth and thus at it’s brightest. We have one or more super-moons every year, but the clouds as shown above are much rarer and get no publicity because they are unpredictable and just appear. They are normal clouds, but the cloud is sitting on the highest point of a gravity wave,  thus appearing to be in straight lines.  [read more …] “Gravity Waves under a Supermoon”

RIP Dolores O’Riordan

In 1995 when the Cranberries were selling albums as fast as they could be manufactured, the Cranberries biggest show at home on the the No Need to Argue Tour was in  Millstreet. They shook the Green Glens that night, before resting in Limerick for a few weeks ahead of two months touring in Europe and the USA.

Four years later, their next Irish gig was also in Millstreet, and it was another fabulous night in the Green Glens, as they played all the crowd favourites mixed with new songs. Endearing happy memories of two special nights in Millstreet, which vividly stick in the minds as for many it was their first big concert (see comments below).

So it is with sadness that we hear of the death of lead singer Dolores O’Riordan this evening. Our prayers and thoughts are with her family and friends.
