Have to go outside to sort a banging noise. Never seen gale and rain like this out here before and there will be damage. Worse than Brendan, and Red Alert area, deluging like a tap but I have a rain cape then going to bed.

So between today and Wednesday there's no chance of slippery roads caused by snow or hail.
Im not on about frost but hail sleet and snow.

Lovely to see the official Shannon airport page spreading misinformation :https://www.facebook.com/28071876868...5207884568684/

Met Éireann’s Orange wind warning for counties including Clare is valid from now till 12:00hr on Sunday.

None Ciara related. This is Cyclone Damien hitting the North West Coast. This is what you call sustain hurricane force winds.

Must be, because every storm is the worst ever.

For the rest of us in exposed areas its just a run of the mill wet and windy day.

So given the upgrade for countrywide orange warning, reckon there will be flight cancellations. I’m due to fly out of Dublin at 10am tomorrow....😬

Up on the 4th floor in an apartment, near Lucan. Fairly getting walloped at the minute. Had a heavy chair on the balcony and took it in. Was moving way too much for my liking already
