A storm moves onshore at Lahinch on Liscannor Bay in Ireland’s County Clare, as high winds blast this part of the Wild Atlantic Way.

In typical Irish weather, all four seasons played out over the course of an hour — freezing rain, high winds and sunshine.
Lahinch is a very popular seaside resort and surfing destination now, with a history that dates back more than a thousand years.
The area has several ancient earthen forts as well as ruins of Medieval castles.
It wasn’t until the late 19th Century that the former fishing village became a preferred beach holiday destination.
Lahinch now also has a popular golf club, founded in 1892, numerous hotels and the Lahinch Seaworld and Leisure Centre with aquarium and 25-metre swimming pool.
No stranger to harsh seaside storms, the Lahinch waterfront has been pounded by high winds and waves and severely damaged more than once during its history — once in 1883 and again just last year!
