No damage, just slight rolling. Wouldn't even have noticed it if you were moving about...

It was my first time feeling one since I am from South was quite a shake but for such a short time that I didnt even realise that it was a tremor. My hubby was asleep and when I woke him up he didnt know about it...

I was sitting at a table in Fuddruckers in Dublin, my chair was on an uneven surface, and it started wobbling back and forth. I knew it was an earthquake, but my husband who was standing up right next to me, felt nothing. He was talking to me, and I kept saying--do you feel that? My chair is shaking!--and he just ignored me and kept talking. I told him--I'm going to prove to you it was an earthquake when we get home and go on the computer.
