CLOSED: Can anyone identify this spider

Kildare, Ireland

Hi

I found this spider today hiding in the doorframe out to the back garden. Never seen one before ( I live in Ireland) thought it looked like a black widow without the markings!!

The pic is only ok but he scuttled off before I got another

Thanks
