A blast of snow as new storm blows in

THE country is bracing itself for the fifth major Atlantic storm to strike in just over four weeks.

Storm Darwin is threatening gusts of up to 140kph, forcing Aer Lingus to cancel a number of flights today. Wind and snow alerts are in place for many counties, with the Irish Coastguard urging people to avoid exposed coastal parts of the west and south-west.

A 'status orange' wind alert has been issued for Cork, Clare, Kerry, Limerick, Wexford, Galway and Waterford. Snow and ice warnings are in place for Donegal, Longford, Westmeath, Cavan, Monaghan, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry.
