Icelandic volcano plume and Irish airspace

Keep seeing lots of speculative stuff in the press about a possible closure of Irish airspace due to the Eyjafjallajökull eruption. At the last look, the webcam showed the whole area looking very grey, and how can I put this; Icelandic. The last quake was an intensity 1.4, on 28th April 2010 at 03:36:57 1.1km underground, at least according to the Icelandic Meteorological Office web site. Current(ish) satellite view at this site, which will join the other links at the top right hand column. There is also another webcam view on the same page below the time looped satellite image.

Will try and post a direct link to the relevant VAAC updates when I can find them.

Update: Irish airspace has been temporarily closed for about 12 hours, but according to all the sources examined, transatlantic flights from the UK and Europe will not suffer.
