Public urged to keep away from coast during high winds

Members of the public are being asked to keep away from cliffs and piers during the current windy conditions.

The coast of Wicklow is being battered by high winds.

A garda spokesperson in Wicklow said “As it is the school holidays we would ask parents to be mindful of where their children are going and remind teenagers of the danger of going to close to the water, the best option is keep away from coastal areas during the present conditions.”
