Weather warning now active for north west

We can expect a period of unsettled weather in the north west.


There’s a warning of electricity blackouts due to a nationwide weather warning that has just gone live.


A status yellow wind alert will continue until 7 o’clock tomorrow morning.


It affects all 26 counties, and winds of up to 110 kilometres an hour are expected.


Paul Downes from Met Eireann says Coastal areas will be most severely impacted with the north west likely to experience the worst of the weather tonight.
