I found this guy during the summer. It was behind a window box on my shed and put up quite a struggle when I was relocating it before painting. Can anyone confirm which species it is. Best guess is Steatoda nobilis or one of its relatives.

Steatoda nobilis

I hope people in Ireland are less panicky about this lovely spider than the English populace.
I believe S.nobilis have been in the Dublin area for some years.
