No SMS was issued for this alert.
A Level Orange Severe Wind warning alert for Galway has already been issued by SMS within the past 24 hours, so no SMS was issued this time around. It is likely that Met Eireann changed the start/end time of the weather warning from the original version and these updated start/end times are included above. The Council will only send an SMS if they havent already done so for a unique weather event within the previous 24 hours. Otherwise, follow up alerts with changed start/end times will be sent by email/app only. Met Éireann xml
