An Aer Lingus flight had an extremely rocky landing at Dublin Airport today as the plane was recorded swaying side-to-side as it touched down on the runway.

Seán Hassett said his heart was in his mouth as he watched flight EI491 land earlier this afternoon.

"My parents flight landing @DublinAirport, well done to the pilot of EI491, my heart was in my mouth!" he wrote on Twitter.

Flights have been severely disrupted at all Irish airports today and over 200 flights were cancelled.
