Before we move on from the St. Jude's swell to the next North Atlantic monster – due late in the week and over the weekend, Thursday and BIG – here's a peek at some Mullaghmore sessions on Sunday and Monday.

The winds, like the swell, were a little wonky, but clearly it was still worth a shot. Here's some of what went down with surfers including Neil Britton, Barry Mottershead, Peter Conroy, Ollie O'Flaherty, Dylan Stott and little crew from the US East Coast.

Stay tuned – the next swell is almost as big and the winds, especially for Western Ireland are slightly more favourable.
