The aftermath of Storm Isha is felt today across Ireland.

A man and a woman have died in separate vehicle accidents during Strom Isha in Ireland.

The man, who was in his 40s and the sole occupant of the car, died following a single-car crash in Co Mayo last night, January 21.

A woman, aged in her 20s, also died after a van she was a passenger in crashed into a tree near Louth village in the early hours of this morning.

A second passenger of the car, a man in his 20s, was taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda, where his injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

Storm Isha brought strong gusts to Ireland overnight and 235,000 households are without power.
