It doesn’t look as if Ireland will be getting a white Christmas this year. In fact it’s set to be a fairly wet one, so batten down the hatches.

The country is facing five days of turbulent weather this festive season, and those travelling home are being urged to stay safe. A status yellow weather warning has also been issued by Met Eireann for the entire Christmas weekend.
