Met Éireann has issued a Yellow Weather Advisory for County Clare as well as Galway, Mayo, Cork, Kerry and Limerick.

High seas, in conjunction with spring tides, are expected later this afternoon and evening on southwest and west coasts of Ireland.

Gale force westerly winds are forecast also, with air pressure below average ( c. 988 hPa at 6pm).

Clare County Council said: “Sea levels will be higher than normal along the west coast of Ireland during the next few hours but Clare County Council does not at this stage foresee any significant flooding. However, it is important that those living along the coast and the Shannon Estuary remain vigilant. Clare County Council will continue to monitor the situation and will issue further updates where necessary.”
