Dublin Ports Re-Opens After High Winds
Dublin Port has re-opened to cargo traffic, after strong winds forced it to close temporarily.
The Dublin Port Tunnel is also running as normal after traffic was restricted from entering the South Bore earlier.
Gardaí say traffic backlogs have now been cleared.
Met Éireann has issued a number of weather warnings for several counties, with Storm Diana set to bring strong winds tomorrow.
