In light of the three weather warnings issued for Galway, the City Council has decided to close parts of the Salthill promenade.

In a statement, the council said: “TheOPW forecast was checked at 3pm on Tuesday 16th Jan. ‘18 and it indicates that high tides will not exceed 5.0 m C.D. in the coming days and therefore below the critical level of 5.6m.”

However, Met Éireann has issued an orange status wind warning for the county ahead of storm Fionn.

“As a precaution Galway City Council will close the Seapoint Promenade at Salthill from Grattan Rd. to the D’Arcy roundabout from 4pm on Tuesday 16th Jan. ’18.” Galway City Council added

Galway City Council said it will continue to monitor the weather over the coming days and review its response as appropriate.
