Flights to and from Cork Airport to London Heathrow cancelled, Cross River Ferry Service also suspended

A Status orange wind warning is in place for Cork this morning due to Storm Ciara and is in effect until midday, with gusts of up to 130 kilometres per hour expected.

High winds have led to the suspension of the cross river ferry between Glenbrook and Carrigaloe this morning and the weather in London has led to some flight cancellations to and from Cork - two services due to depart for Heathrow at 7.30am and 11.50 have been cancelled with two flights due to arrive for Heathrow at 11.10am and 3.20pm have both been cancelled. The Ryanair flight from Alicante into Cork which was due at 12.50 has been delayed until approximately 3pm 

On the roads Gardai are advising extreme caution as roads are very wet and some isolated spot flooding has been reported across the city and county
