    All of us (north and south of Ireland) are off school and literally preparing for the worst.
    Trees are falling, flood prep is underway and a woman has sadly died in Co. Waterford. Just a quick message to anyone Irish on here, please stay safe, don't go outside unless you have to and take it seriously, people are losing electricity, be prepared you might be next. I'm Northern Irish and we have strong winds here, apparently the rain isn't coming until around 3:00.

    Seconded from Wicklow, a lot of trees have fallen and crushed some buildings; I don't know about casualties so far.

    Please stay inside and don't try to be a joker, and any Scottish please prepare to stay inside as well - it's headed for you next.

    Thank you so much, same with you! (if your electricity doesn't go out that is,)
    We have very strong winds, trees falling, plant pots, wheely bins etc. The rain clouds are also approaching so looking forward to that -_- It is probably much worse down south atm

    I'm on 4G for life, Irish wifi was terrible even before a giant hurricane :laugh:

    I'm not super far-south (RIP Cork) but yeah, it's worse there now but it'll probably get worse for NI/Scotland eventually Has there been much destruction wherever you are? D:

    I'm from Co. Armagh (the one under Lough Neagh), the rain has arrived on schedule, and just trees and stuff, nothing too worrying, hopefully it won't get much worse:pinch:
