Irish flight and ferry sailings back on schedule following storm

Flights and ferry sailings are expected to depart on schedule today, as the massive storm that wreaked havoc across the Irish Sea has passed by Ireland.

Commuters and travellers will breathe a sigh of relief this morning as it appears there will be no disruptions to travel.

Today's sailings are expected to depart on schedule, and no flights have been cancelled this morning.

Ferry services were worst hit at the weekend, with all of the Irish Ferries fast craft Jonathan Swift Dublin to Hollyhead sailings for Sunday and yesterday cancelled.

Meanwhile, AA Roadwatch reports that traffic will be quieter on Irish roads this week, since schoolchildren are on holiday

Today's forecast promises a bright day, with sunny spells and scattered showers.

Most of the showers will be in the southwest, west and north, with many areas further east staying dry and they will largely die away this evening.

Maximum temperatures will be 10 to 12 Celsius, with fresh to strong westerly winds easing later.
