A number of transport services are also curtailed.

Motorists are urged to avoid travel during the peak of the storm.

However, if forced to travel, they should take extreme care on all routes and be mindful of the likelihood of fallen trees and branches and fallen power lines.

Transport services throughout the county have been affected: Shannon Ferries says this evening’s last sailing from Killimer will be at 6.00, while the final sailing from Tarbert will be at 6.30.

Elsewhere, Kerry Airport says, at the moment, only the Dublin-Kerry flight, which was due to arrive in Farranfore at 8pm, has been cancelled.

Bus Eireann has postponed or cancelled a number of services this evening, with some 6pm services resuming at 8:10 this evening.

A cycling event in Dingle, scheduled for tomorrow morning, has also succumbed to the weather.

Ride Dingle was due to take place around the Chorca Dhuibhne Peninsula, taking cyclists around Slea Head and over towards Camp and Annascaul.

Over 1700 people have registered for the event.

Organiser Oliver Kirwan says they’d no choice but to postpone.
