Shannon Airport reopens

AFTER closing for a number of hours due to this afternoon’s severe weather, when winds gusts reached 150k per hour, Shannon Airport has now reopened.

An Aer Arann plane that was parked at the airport blew over during the course of the afternoon, while some of the cladding on the roof of the airport blew down. The terminal building also had to be evacuated after a fire alarm went off after a door swung open and struck it.

A number of trees were also knocked in Shannon and Met Éireann’s radar suffered wind damage during the storm.
