24 June 2006, Monivea, County Galway. Tornadoes are rarely seen in Ireland but they do happen from time to time. This unusual funnel cloud formation was observed near Monivea, County Galway on Saturday 24 June 2006. A funnel cloud like this becomes a tornado only if it touches the ground. This one did not.
