Storm Doris hit this parish hard...

Over the past 24 hours, Storm Doris has caused chaos throughout Ireland, felling a number of trees and leaving 20,000 homes without power.

A number of commuter services this morning were also affected with DART services were operating out of Malahide and Portmarnock cancelled due to a tree caught in overhead power lines.

The worst of the storm seems to have passed on for now, and the national weather warnings have been lifted with just a couple of status yellow marine warnings in place.

But Doris will have a lasting effect on some areas of the country, as it damaged a famous Game of Thrones scene in Antrim earlier today.

In Trim, Co Meath, the local GAA pitch was severely hit by the storm and didn't hold up well at all as Doris toppled the goalposts and knocked the posts holding up the nets behind the goal.
