Quite windy for a time here near Tralee early morning but lightened off very quickly. Very much a sea area / coastal fringe wind warning I would think.

Ballybunion Buoy : 10.05 avg Wind 28 kts Gust 44 gkts
: 11.40 avg wind 16kts Gust 25 kts

Met Eireann did update the warning to include Cork also.

As the stronger winds move up along the coast see a recent gust in Donegal of 86 km/h and Thomastown with 84 km/h. Much lighter in Kerry now.
