Incredible images of lightning storm over west Cork

Residents of the west Cork village of Baltimore were treated to a pyrotechnical spectacular tonight as a lightning storm rolled in from the Atlantic.

The below shot posted on the Best Photos of Baltimore Facebook page was captioned "the world is ending!"

While this one, taken by 12-year-old Daniel Hegarty, was even more impressive.

And we think this one, shot by Youen Jacob and illuminating the Beacon at the mouth of Roaringwater Bay, is the coup de grace.
