In Cork City it's basically at standard winter Atlantic storm levels. It's also begun to rain since just before 9:00pm

I'm almost afraid to say it at this point, but still some strong gusts here where I am in Cork City. Trees just bent over in a gust now. Similar to what we get in winter, but the leaves malemor more severe. Time has become longer between them.

Quite a bit lower down then the airport but still close, we usually get the same weather as the airport where I am.

Can anyone tell me what's going on with Aer Lingus 890 at Cork Airport at the moment? Looks like it's just taxiing around waiting for a break in the weather.

Gusts to 9 pm still below the earlier 62 knots. Even the rooftop station at the Cliffs of Moher is gusting 58 knots, albeit on the increase. Highest Ballybunion Buoy gust still 69.knots. It's looking significantly weaker than models had progged for this time. So far...

Keep an eye on Finnis Buoy, just east of the Aran Islands. Currently gusting to 57 knots.

Some pretty powerful gusts here in Clare. Bricking it as old roof and a few of the tiles not so great..... Hope stays intact. It is as red here as ever was a red.
