FLIGHT OPERATIONS at Dublin Airport are returning to normal this evening after a number of flights were diverted earlier due to heavy crosswinds.

A number of flights which were due to arrive in Dublin in mid-afternoon and early evening were cancelled, with a number of other inbound flights redirected to Shannon or Belfast airports.

Dublin Airport Authority advised passengers intending to travel from Dublin this evening to contact their airline before travelling to the airport.

Wind speeds at the airport reached 54 knots – or 100 km/h – this afternoon, as a storm warning remains in effect over many parts of the country.

Gale and small craft warnings are in place around other coastal areas.
