Don’t make unnecessary journeys.
That’s the advice from Cork City Council today, as Ireland braces for Storm Agnes.
With Status Orange wind and rain warnings in place for Cork from 9am to 5pm today, the first named storm of the season is already wreaking havoc on travel plans.
With reports of a fallen tree on the R600 near Fivemile, Cork Airport has urged passengers intending to travel today and tomorrow to check the status of their flight with their airline and take extra care getting to the airport.
Passengers intending to travel today are advised to exercise due caution when travelling to and from @CorkAirport.
