Ireland is currently in the midst of a nationwide weather warning, with some coastal counties set to be hit harder than others.

AA Roadwatch has published a list of roads that have been forcibly closed or blocked off due to storm debris, fallen trees, flooding or high tides.

  • There are trees down on the Conor Pass at the bad bends. The council is en route.
  • Strand St in Dingle is impassable due to high tide.


  • The N73 is blocked by a fallen tree between Mitchelstown and Mallow at Annakisha South.
  • A power fault in the Macroom area may be affecting traffic lights. Drive with care.
