Ireland Struck By Super-Storm

The country bore the brunt of a horrendous storm this week. With last weeks flooding taking their toll in Cork and Limerick, the wind added its two cents this week by creating havoc to many of the country’s roads and towns.

The super storm raged throughout the country, but concentrated mostly on the South West. Its resulted in felled trees, unturned trucks, and even an overturned plane in Shannon airport.

Met Eireann issued a red alert for most parts of the country and described the storm that reached winds of up to 110mph off the Irish Sea, as the most severe storm to hit Ireland in over 250 years.

The weather is cold and strong for the coming week, but after the weekend, it’s meant to steadily improve. Let’s hope so.
