Severe weather warnings have been issued ahead of the arrival of Storm Barra on Tuesday.

The Atlantic system will bring very strong winds and heavy rain.

A Met Office warning has been issued for Northern Ireland from 06:00 GMT Tuesday until midnight the same day.

The strongest gusts will affect exposed and coastal areas in the region, with potentially damaging and disruptive winds up to 80km/h (50mph) expected widely.

Gusts around the coast could reach speeds up to 115km/h (70 mph).

Those winds could lead to large waves and possible flooding.

Disruption to travel is also likely.

They are Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, and Galway.

A yellow warning has been issued for all other counties.

It is also warning of a significant possibility of coastal flooding along the south and west coast.

Storm Barra is the second named storm this season following Storm Arwen.
