A WIND WARNING has been issued for the west coast of the country, with Met Éireann forecasting some “very strong” winds in counties Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork and Kerry from tomorrow evening.

The ‘yellow alert’ warning kicks in at 6pm tomorrow and will stay in place until 9am on Monday.

“Some very strong west, veering northwest winds are expected to affect western and southwestern coastal counties,” Met Éireann says.

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.

Today will be cool and blustery with heavy showers this morning and this afternoon. They’ll die off later in the day.

This evening will start off clear, with cloud increasing overnight. The winds will build throughout tomorrow afternoon, according to the latest forecast.

An area of low pressure spreading in from the Atlantic on Tuesday is likely to bring a further risk of strong winds.
