Met Éireann has issued another weather warning for seven counties

Snow is falling in many parts of the country and weather warnings remain in effect for many areas of the country as Storm Ciara continues to pass over Ireland.

Currently there are two weather warnings in effect, a Status Orange wind warning for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry and a Status Yellow wind warning for the rest of the country.

Both warnings are due to expire at 8pm on Monday night.

But Met Éireann has issued another Status Yellow wind warning for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry.

This will come into effect from 8pm on Monday evening and will bring strong westerly winds with gusts of up to 110km/h.

A combination of spring tides and high seas will result in a risk of coastal flooding, especially around high tide.

Meanwhile there is also a Status Yellow snow and ice warning active in Ireland until midnight on Tuesday.

Snow and sleet in some areas have caused poor road conditions across the country with AA Roadwatch warning that roads in Limerick, Clare, Tipperary, Carlow, Laois, Wicklow, Kildare, Donegal, Kilkenny, Sligo, Waterford and Kerry have all been affected by snowfall and flooding and is advising motorists to exercise caution accordingly.
