“Southerly winds will reach storm force during Monday on all Irish coastal waters and on the Irish Sea, with violent storm force winds expected at times.” 


There is also a significant risk of coastal flooding due to the combination of high spring tides and storm surge.


All vessel owners are advised to check their moorings and ensure that effective bilge pumping arrangements are in place.


Members of the public are advised to keep away from piers, breakwaters and exposed coastal areas.
