Weather warning in place as Storm Barbara blows in

Motorists are advised to exercise caution today as Storm Barbara is set to batter most of the country.

Weather experts have predicted that the second storm of the winter season will cause significant disruption to travel with winds in excess of 120 kmh predicted.

Met Eireann has issued a status orange warning for coastal regions and counties Donegal, Galway and Mayo until 6pm today.

A less extreme Yellow warning is in place for everywhere else – also until 6pm.


Irish ferries has also cancelled a number of sailings in and out of Rosslare as a result of the storm which is currently to the West in the Atlantic.
