Gallery: It was wet out there today, very wet. Here's the pics to prove it

The east got the worst out if with high tides breaching sea walls along the coast.

IN CASE YOU you were rolled up in a ball on your couch on this New Year’s Day and didn’t notice, the weather was quite wild out there today.

It was so wet and windy there that there was flooding and road closures in a number of areas along the east coast.

Even worse than that, the Irish Coast Guard had to respond to a number of different incidents in the Dublin area, thankfully there were no fatalities or injuries.

So yea, it was rotten weather altogether. But if you still don’t believe me here’s a slideshow to prove it.
