THE COAST GUARD has urged people to be careful along Atlantic coastal areas tomorrow due to a wind alert.

Met Éireann has issued a status yellow wind warning, with some very strong winds in the west expected to affect western and southwestern coastal counties tomorrow and Monday morning.

Winds will gust at up to 110km/h – with the strongest gusts in hilly and coastal areas. Very high seas are forecast for tomorrow night and Monday morning too.

The Coast Guard has urged people to be careful along exposed coasts, cliffs and piers, harbour walls and promenades along the Atlantic seaboard.

If you see someone in difficulty in the sea, please dial 999/112 and ask for the Coast Guard.
