Social media users are sharing images of the Storm Desmond aftermath, documenting the awesome power and destructive force of nature.
One Twitter user shared a spectacular picture of the sea at Hook Head.
The grey seas can be seen swirling angrily as the strong winds battered the south east.
Another posted images of an extremely flooded football pitch, showing the damage and disruption that floodwaters can cause.
"Bring back winter football!" the user captioned the photograph.
"The aftermath of Storm Desmond, he can fairly shoot out some rain!," another wrote.
A tweeter in Leitrim shared a picture of Glencar waterfall being literally "blown up in the air".
Another posted a picture of the deluge of floodwaters in Knocklyon, Dublin.
A gorgeous little dog can be seen standing in the strong winds, his fur being blown in every direction.
Meanwhile, video filmed by a woman who on a plane on the runway at Dublin Airport as Storm Desmond took hold shows the plane swaying in the storm force winds.
"I'm on the runway for the last 90 minutes, seems it's fairly windy out there," she wrote.
A tweeter in Leitrim shared a picture of an over flowing river and captioned it "Sometimes wellies aren't enough"
