A local and coinciding whirlwind

The Dublin Daily Express reported that small masses of damp hay fell at Monkstown, Ireland, on July 27, 1875. Dr. J.W. Moore explained it away as the result of a nearby whirlwind that coincided with the fall. Scientific American reported a similar fall near Wrexham, England, two days before.
