Forget the weather - the real storm hits Ireland today with both Roy Keane and Alex Ferguson in Dublin for separate public engagements.
Corkman Keane is in the Aviva Stadium for the launch of his second biography, ‘The Second Half’ and is due to give a press conference at 3pm.
Meanwhile former Manchester United manager Ferguson will address over 1700 people who are due to attend the Dublin Chamber of Commerce annual dinner at the Convention Centre. The Taoiseach Enda Kenny is also expected to attend this evening's event.

The fractious relationship between the two Man United legends hit the headlines again this week. Copies of Keane’s book were leaked on Monday and revealed Keane speaking in scathing terms about his former manager.
With Keane describing the Scot as a “f*****g p***k” it is unlikely the two have made any plans to meet up for a trip down memory lane
