Over on the minor planet mailing list , there is a prediction of a 1 metre impactor around 3am, 13th Feb. The favoured location is northern France, with an uncertainty of some dozens of kms. So just possibly something visible over southern Ireland.

It looks like it was over the english channel. There is a video of it on the BBC website.

Yes, the predictions for both time and location were spot on. This courtesy of Strewnify meteorites on Discord -

It's a brilliant fireball for sure, Finbarr!
Thank you for bringing it to our attention. 

I find it amazing that astronomers can now foresee these fireballs. 

Very best regards and clear skies from Aubrey.
