THE stormy conditions that wreaked havoc across the Irish Sea passed by Ireland with relatively little impact.
While Storm St Jude caused carnage in parts of the UK, claiming several lives, Ireland emerged unscathed.
"There was disruption but it was from the European side of things in places like Belgium and the Netherlands – and of course England, too – so Irish flights avoided the worst of it," Aer Lingus spokesperson Declan Kearney told the Irish Independent.
Ryanair said there were some delays and one diversion but no other disruptions or flight cancellations.
He said that some of the blustery conditions over the past 48 hours were loosely connected to the storm – but said it had been a bit of a "non-event" for Ireland.
The blustery, unsettled weather looks likely to persist for the remainder of the week, however.
"The Atlantic influence looks likely to return so we should see typical autumnal weather with a good deal of showers and further unsettled weather for the remainder of the week."
