Parts of Co Clare remain without power as the clean-up from Storm Hannah continues.

Throughout Friday night and the early hours of Saturday morning, Clare Fire Services dealt with more than 70 incidents across the county. This involved removing fallen trees and debris to make roads passable and safe for motorists. Emergency services also responded to separate callouts for a chimney fire and CO alarm.

Council crews from all Municipal Districts will be working all day on Saturday to clear the remaining fallen trees and debris. Motorists are advised to drive with caution on roads this weekend.

Met Éireann’s strongest wind speed in the county at the height of Storm Hannah was 119 km/h at Shannon Airport. However, gusts of 153 km/h were recorded at Moneypoint, though Met Éireann do not measure wind speeds in West Clare.

Flights to Shannon Airport were also disrupted with flights from the UK having to divert to Dublin Airport and other services cancelled.
