Alert message from Met Eireann:
Storm Atiyah (Ah-tee-ya) will track between Iceland and Ireland on Sunday, generating very strong winds across the country. Southwesterly winds, later veering northwesterly, will reach mean speeds between 65 and 80 km/h with gusts between 110 and 130km/h, possibly higher in exposed coastal areas.
Due to a combination of high seas and storm surge there is a possibility of coastal flooding.

No SMS was issued for this alert.
A Level Orange Severe Wind warning alert for Limerick 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
