Clodagh- a nice Irish name for a girl. Who gets to choose the name of the storm?

I thought the public had been invited to submit names. So far we have some appropriate names smile - Abigail (a big gale) and Barney. Clodagh maybe because it sounds like clouds?

I think it may have been named by the Irish weather people although I could be making that up

Anyone remember Clodagh Rodgers?

Somebody with a clipboard and a masters in storm formation patterns fancies a woman called Clodagh.

I remember ( very vaguely) Clodagh Rogers.
There was an Irish dress designer called Clodagh.
I think she made it big (ger) in the States.
I presume it was the Irish Met service that named this one.
Do the 2 Met Services take it in turns?

A large sycamore has just blown over in the gardens opposite us! Not sure of the damage yet, its fallen across gardens and garages.

Really windy here. Greater Manchester.

"Meaning of the Irish name Clodagh..named after the river Clody"

Sounds like cloudy? Or could be sounds like Blowed a gail?

Gusts of 80 mph recorded in some parts of Greater Manchester. Roof blown off shops and roads local to me closed by fallen trees!
