Looks Like the Forecasters got it right!

Picture on the right shows workers putting sandbags in Clontarf in preparation for the storm with a lady struggling with her brolly

There was a hell of a lot of wind and rain this evening, the forecasters have said that this, combined with the current high tides will likely cause flooding in coastal areas.
The usual towns and villages in Dublin have been provided with sandbags and the council have put up a temporary flood wall using larger bags, along the seafront at Sandymount.
Many of the residents of Sandymount, Ringsend, Drumcondra and Clontarf; some of the places mentioned are elderly and many are uninsured /uninsurable as a similar disaster hit them only a couple of years ago.
It seems the city council is a very slow learner!
