As County Clare took a battering from storm-force winds last night and in the early hours of this morning, the roof of a stable in Clarecastle was blown off.

Two horses in the stables of Carole McLaughlin escaped injury.

A few miles away, at St Flannan’s College a mature tree was toppled along with heavy branches from other trees.

Around the county, there were other reports of some trees down but there were no reports of serious damage.

 

Met Éireann has downgraded the red and orange weather alerts to moderate winds and rain.
