Storm Dennis has played havoc with this afternoon's GAA fixtures across the country, with a number of games postponed due to the detrimental weather conditions.

There is a Status Orange wind warning in place for many coastal counties - Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Leitrim, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, and Limerick.

That warning is in place until ten o'clock tonight, with southwest winds with poor conditions expected - Met Éireann are warning of mean speeds of 60 to 80 km/h with severe gusts of up to 120km/h, strongest on exposed hills and coasts, with a risk of coastal flooding.

The Allianz Hurling Leagues Division 1 clash between Limerick and Waterford has been postponed due to forecasted high winds.

The LIT Gaelic Grounds match had been re-arranged from yesterday.

Tipperary's visit to Galway is also off for the same reason, with re-fixture details expected early next week.

Some of today's hurling games were called off as early as yesterday - Offaly versus Antrim in Division 2A, Kildare's Division 2B visit to Derry, and Fermanagh against Sligo in Division 3B.

T-E-G Cusack Park in Mullingar passed a pitch inspection this morning, so Westmeath versus Cork goes ahead as planned, as does Wexford and Kilkenny's match elsewhere in Division 1.

Cusack Park in Ennis has also passed a pitch inspection and so Clare versus Laois goes ahead as planned at two o'clock this afternoon.

Other games set to go ahead following pitch inspections this morning are the Allianz Leagues Division 2 football re-scheduled game between Laois and Cavan, and Louth and Offaly's match at Drogheda Park in Division 3.

Wicklow versus Sligo in Division 4 of the football and the Division 3A hurling encounter between Louth and Donegal in Darver have also survived the conditions to go ahead.

Yesterday in Division 1 Group B of the Allianz Hurling Leagues, Dublin were impressive eleven-point victors over Carlow - easing to a 0-20 to 0-11 win at Netwatch Cullen Park.

Kerry's hurlers had an impressive win in Division 2A, beating Meath away from home in Trim by 0-13 to 0-8.
