Warning about falling trees and branches due to strong winds

Met Eireann has reiterated warnings of very unsettled weather over the Halloween weekend and up to 6pm on Monday.

A series of powerful Atlantic weather systems including Storm Aiden are battering Ireland with winds and rain.

Spells of heavy rain are leading to surface and river flooding in places.

Forecasters warned of very stormy conditions at times with some severe and damaging gusts possible.

Some coastal flooding is also a risk due to the combination of low pressure, high tides and onshore winds. 

A Status Yellow Wind Warning is in place for Wexford, Cork and Waterford until 2am on Monday.

A Status Yellow Rainfall Warning for Cork, Kerry, Limerick and Tipperary is also in place.
