Dublin Airport confirm numerous flights are cancelled due to the high winds of Storm Ali
Cork and Shannon airports have also warned travellers to check their flight details before leaving their homes.
Storm Ali has arrived, putting 17 counties in Ireland under some form of weather warning, and the repercussions are already being felt.
Late on Tuesday evening, it was confirmed that the inclement weather caused by Storm Ali would set back the start time of the events at the Ploughing Championshipsthe events at the Ploughing Championships, and early on Wednesday morning, Dublin Airport announced that a number of flights would be delayed or outright cancelled due to the high winds.
At the time of writing, the majority of the cancelled flights appear to be between Ireland and the UK, with some additional flights (specifically arrivals) from mainland Europe also cancelled this morning.
Again, at the time of writing, the latest cancelled flight today is at 2.10pm, as Dublin's weather warning is only valid until 1pm, but other parts of the country will still be under a weather warning until 5pm this evening.
In terms of other airports around the country, Belfast Airport has issued no statement, Kerry Airport has confirmed there is one cancelled flight (details on that here), and Cork and Shannon Airports issued statements via tweet:
