ESB crews are working on restoring power as up to 140,000 homes and businesses are without power.

Fallen trees on overhead lines are the main issue following high winds.

Most of the outages are along the west coast with some in Dublin.

The worst impacted areas are Cavan, Sligo, Galway, Thurles, Castlebar, Tralee, Portlaoise, Mullingar and Dundalk.

 

The second day of the National Ploughing Championships has been delayed further due to Storm Ali.

It was due to open around 11am but organisers are still meeting to assess the situation.

A final call on whether the event will go ahead today will be made at midday.

It is only the second time in its 87-year history that the farming festival has been delayed because of extreme weather.
