We're more used to seeing Hector bouncing around ag caint Gaeilge but this latest version looks altogether more sinister.
Met Éireann has this morning issued a status orange weather warning as Storm Hector makes its way across the country. The wind warning will affect Donegal, Mayo, Galway and Sligo with gusts of 110 to 125 km/hr, strongest in coastal areas.
