Large areas of Cork were submerged in water after intense periods of rain brought by Babet caused flooding.

Just a few weeks later, Storm Ciaran wreaked havoc in certain areas of counties Down and Louth.

The national forecaster warned up the upcoming storm on Saturday, saying there was "potential for a spell of wet and very windy weather over Ireland on Sunday night and for a time on Monday as a deepening depression tracks over the country," before issuing weather warnings on Sunday.
