Battered: Your pictures of how the storm took its toll

Our readers have been photographing the incredible – and in some cases, devastating – impact of the high tides and storms.

Updated 2.35pm Saturday 4 January

COASTAL AREAS AROUND the country took a battering overnight, and unfortunately the bad weather is set to continue.

Cities including Cork, Dublin, Clare, Belfast and Galway and their surrounding areas have all seen roads and buildings affected, in some cases badly, by last night’s high tides and storms.

More high tides are due this weekend, so people are asked to be on alert. For the latest on road closures, floods, and how to stay safe on the roads, see our earlier article.

Here are some photos our readers have taken of the incredible waves and terrible impact of the bad weather around the country.
