Storm Doris has caused havoc in Ireland over the past few days, and she's not done yet.

While she has mostly moved on to our British neighbour to the east, the tail end of Doris is still affecting coastal countries on our west coast.

According to AA Roadwatch:

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow Wind Warning for Donegal, Galway and Mayo, with winds of up to 65km/h and gusts of up to 100km/h expected overnight. The warning is valid from 9pm tonight (24th) to 9am tomorrow.

Wind-blown debris is likely to be a problem on secondary roads in particular. Bear in mind that high-sided vehicles are especially vulnerable on open or exposed roads. Be mindful of pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

The gusts are expected to relax by tomorrow morning, but roads may still be somewhat dangerous throughout the weekend. 

We recommending making like Teresa Mannion and not taking unnecessary journeys. 

Just one journey. Bed.
