Bus Éireann will not operate any of its nationwide services – including the Expressway network – from 5am to 2pm on Monday.

The company will review the situation in the morning, and will attempt to provide some level of service in some parts of the country in the afternoon, but it is likely widespread disruption could continue for most of the day.

A spokesperson said: "This unprecedented decision is taken in the interests of our customers and staff, and following careful consideration of the advice of agencies co-ordinating a response to Hurricane Ophelia."

"We apologise for the inconvenience and disruption this will cause, but the hurricane is described as a ‘life threatening event’ and both Met Éireann and the National Emergency Co-Ordination Group have advised people to ‘stay indoors’ and ‘not to travel.’ Bus Éireann have also informed their employees not to travel to work tomorrow before 2pm."

Meanwhile, Dublin Bus have advised customers there will be disruption, including cancellations, to its services between the hours of 9am and 6pm.
