Latest weather bulletin informs of west to southwest gale force 8 to storm force 10 winds continuing overnight and Monday morning on all coasts of Ireland and on the Irish Sea. Winds will further reach violent storm force 11 at times between Slyne Head and Malin Head.

Today's storm will not be unlike the conditions brought by Storm Christine at the beginning of this month. "Wind-wise it'll be similar, and other meteorological parameters are similar. All the potential is there for it to be similar," a Met Éireann spokesperson said.

Members of the public have been urged to heed the advice of the Irish Coast Guard as Met Éireann  issued an orange weather warning for counties Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Kerry and Limerick.

The Coast Guard strongly advises the public not to go out on exposed coasts, cliffs, piers, harbour walls, beaches, promenades or any other coastal areas during the inclement weather. Huge waves can be whipped up by high seas. These waves can pose hazards to anyone close to the shoreline.
 
Manager of the Irish Coast Guard, Declan Geoghegan said: "The public should be extremely careful when venturing out in such conditions, they should check the weather forecast and remain away from exposed areas.” Owners of small vessels and fishing vessels in coastal waters should seek shelter and secure them properly with moorings.
