The warning came into effect at 6am on Tuesday and remains in place until 9pm on Tuesday night.

The forecaster said south to southwest winds will reach mean wind speeds of 50 to 65km/h, with gusts of 90 to 110km/h.

There will also be a risk of coastal flooding where winds are onshore.

This new warning comes on top of several other warnings which are already active.

A Status Orange rainfall warning is in effect for Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford until 9pm on Tuesday night.

Met Éireann warned that very heavy rain on Monday night and Tuesday in these counties will likely cause further river flooding and surface water flooding.

A Status Yellow rainfall warning is also in effect for Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Clare, Limerick and Connacht until 9pm on Tuesday night.
