Just got this sent over to my website late last night which I got permission to share. This spectacular funnel cloud was captured on Thurs July 15th by Michael Cashman who was on holidays at the time on Achill Island off the coast of Mayo. He said it was already there when he arrived and it lasted for 5 min's in duration, the main funnel had a another vortex tube inside. Quite a spectacular image and close to a touch down, Michael said he didn't see any ground contact  - however a weak disturbance was certainly possible!

Thats an amazing capture, very impressive. I cant believe the amount the sightings and images of funnel clouds over the country this year-some of these days very soon i believe a touchdown will be captured, its only a matter of time!
