A Status Orange weather warning has been issued for the west coast as Storm Jorge approaches Ireland this weekend.
The wind warning will be in place for seven counties from Saturday morning into the early hours of Sunday.
A yellow wind warning will be in place for the rest of the country.
Met Eireann has issued the orange alert for counties Kerry, Clare, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal.
Storm Jorge has been named by the Spanish Met Office and is set to make landfall on Saturday.
Along with the orange warning for those counties, a yellow warning has been issued for the rest of the country.
Met Eireann says it is monitoring the progress of the storm before issuing more warnings.
