The strongest winds and gusts are expected in coastal areas and exposed hills and mountains.

An orange marine warning is also now in place. Winds will reach gale force 8 or gale-force since today, on Irish coastal waters from Carnsore Point to Mizen Head to Lood head.

Earlier this morning, thousands of homes in a Cork suburb woke up without power.

The ESB said that almost 4,500 homes and businesses in the Ballincollig, Ovens, and Inishannon areas experienced a disruption in supply. The ESB apologised for the outages, and it now says power has now been restored.
