Galway News - Incredible images of Storm Ali damage in Galway

Storm Ali has wreaked havoc in County Galway today, with one casualty reported after a woman’s caravan blew off a cliff, and thousands of homes losing electricity as downed trees block roads all over the county.

Bus Eireann have cancelled all Galway City services until further notice.

Met Éireann noted that wind speeds this morning reached 143km/hr in Mace Head, County Galway – the strongest gusts nationwide from Ali and categorised as a severe weather event.

They advised “extreme caution” in the gale force winds.

The worst of the storm is expected to be over by 1pm this afternoon.

But the damage from Ali may continue to affect Galwegians for hours afterwards.

Be safe out there, everyone.
