Met Eireann have downgraded their RED weather alert to ORANGE this morning.

"Southwest winds will reach mean speeds of 65 to 80 km/h with gusts of 110 to 120 km/h at times, highest in exposed areas. Winds will veer westerly later.”

Kerry County Council reports no significant damage resulting from last night’s storm. However, the Council is warning that there will be a significant amount of branches, bushes and debris on Kerry roads, so road users are asked to exercise care when driving.

Road temperatures have fallen, and there may be icy patches on some roads, especially those in higher areas and local roads. Some priority routes may not have been treated due to the high winds last night, so motorists are advised to drive with extreme care.
