A more severe Orange Warning has also been issued for Cork.

Met Eireann says it will become very windy tonight (Tuesday night) and this will continue into Wednesday morning. Strong and gusty southeast winds, veering southwest will gust up to 100km/h. Due to high seas and strong onshore winds, there is the elevated risk of coastal flooding.
