Batten Down The Hatches: Storm Fionn Is On The Way

Another day, another storm. It looks like we're in for another lockdown as Met Éireann has issued four weather warnings with Storm Fionn making it way towards Ireland.

The forecaster has predicted a sub-zero winter storm that will bring polar shower winds that could reach in excess of 120 km/h. A national orange warning is in place across the country with a gale wind orange warning in coastal regions and two yellow warnings for wind, snow, and ice in midland counties.

A status orange wind warning for counties Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork and Kerry is expected to remain in place until 3am Wednesday. The Atlantic coastal counties can expect winds speeds of up to 80km/h and gusts of up to 120km/h.

Gusts of wind in excess of 110km/h is expected to for counties in Leinster, and Cavan, Monaghan, Roscommon, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford.

Snow and ice warnings have been given for Ulster and Connacht and are expected to last until 3am Wednesday morning. Flooding is expected in coastal areas of Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick. Temperatures will be - 1 in most regions throughout the night.


With an Irish mythological name like Fionn, we're expecting ferocious things. We knew we preferred The Children of Lír for a reason.
