Flights Cancelled Due To Extreme Weather

A number of flights out of Dublin and Cork were cancelled this morning due to extreme weather conditions throughout the night.

Aer Lingus warned of knock-on flight delays and cancellations.

High winds at Dublin and Cork airports necessitated diversions of a large number of aircraft, from their originally intended Irish destinations, to Shannon and UK airports.

Shannon Airport remained open overnight and accommodated 14 flights due to land at Dublin and Cork airports.

Around 22 flights out of Dublin Airport, and four out of Cork, were cancelled.

Passengers are advised to check with their airline before heading to the airport.
