Clare, Cork, Donegal, Kerry, Leitrim, Limerick, Mayo, Roscommon, and Sligo are also affected by the warning.

This afternoon will see sunny spells and showers, in moderate to fresh and gusty southwesterly winds, strongest near the coast. Today’s highest temperatures will be 10 to 12 celcius.

Tonight will be blustery with scattered showers across Connacht, some heavy with a risk of hail and isolated thunderstorms.
