A status orange weather warning has been issued by Met Éireann for two counties

Two separate weather warnings have now been issued, including one status orange wind warning.

Earlier on Thursday morning, a status orange weather warning was issued for the coast of Ireland.

Since then, a further two weather warnings have been issued by Met Éireann for a total of eight counties in Ireland.

A status orange wind warning was issued for Donegal and Mayo that will come in to place from 1pm on Friday. It is expected to last until 8pm on the same day.

There is also a risk of coastal damage on exposed northwest coasts due to a combination of winds, high spring tides and high storm surge.

A status yellow wind warning is also in place for Connacht, Cavan, Donegal, Clare, Kerry, Limerick. This will come into place from Thursday at 10pm until 12pm the following day.

So if you're headed out tonight in any of these counties, make sure to take care.
