About this map: 

Interactive mapping based on the writings & research work done by John Tyrrell, Dept. of Geography, (UCC). This map plots the path of a T4 level tornado as it tore through the centre of Limerick City.The Tornado occurred at 5.20pm on Sunday the 5th October 1851. The weather that day was described as "cold and blowing, with occasional showers" (Munster News) and as "overcast and rather gusty" (Griffin). Griffin records that the temperature that day varied between 10 and 13 degrees Celsius.Despite the force of the tornado, and the amount of destruction it caused, there was just one fatality, Thomas Ryan, who was struck on the head by a flying tile. This occurred on Carr Street. The track of the tornado was described as being "zig-zag" (Limerick Chronicle) & moving from west to east.Tyrrell's article can be accessed here > http://www.ucd.ie/gsi/pdf/30-2/tornado.pdf
