As the country counts the cost of Storm Ophelia, another weather warning could be heading our way.

Storm Brian is currently forecast to make landfall on Friday or Saturday.

It's said to be a similar system to Ophelia, but a Met Eireann is forecasting that it won't be as bad, but it is too early to say what it will bring.

Forcaster John Eagleton says: "I don't see it as anywhere near the same Ophelia.

"At it's current track it'll bring a lot of rain across the rain across the country, maybe give a breezy day.

"Some low level wind warnings are possible or maybe some rain warnings will be issued. It's too early to say at this time."
