Cork has been rocked by an earthquake for the first time since records began more than three decades ago. The Irish National Seismic Network (INSN) revealed that a quake measuring 2.6 hit in the Celtic Sea, some 18km south of Ballymacshoneen on the West Cork coast shortly before 8am today. It was recorded by seismic stations in Valentia, Co Kerry, Dublin and Wexford and British Geological Survey stations throughout Wales.
