Ireland is in the grip of another major storm with severe weather warnings across the country.

Police have warned against unnecessary travel and ferry and airport services have again been disrupted.

The Irish government’s weather service Met Eireann has issued a ‘severe weather warning’ as heavy rain and strong winds sweep across the country.

Driving conditions have been described as treacherous in parts of the country as the heavy rain makes some roads almost impassable.

Met Eireann warned: “Coastal counties in Leinster and Ulster are most at risk for the highest rainfall and spot flooding has occurred in some areas.

“It will also be extremely windy this morning with south-easterly gales and gusts of 80km-110km an hour in exposed areas.

“A gale warning is in place and high winds are expected on Irish coastal waters from Erris Head to Fair Head to Howth Head and the Irish Sea north of Anglesea.”

A number of ferry sailings have already been affected by the weather while some flights in and out of Dublin airport have been delayed.

The Automobile Association has warned drivers to take extreme care, especially truckers driving high-sided vehicles.
