Schools in Dublin have been advised to close tomorrow, as Storm Barra approaches.

The Department of Education says schools in all counties under status red or orange warnings should stay shut tomorrow.

Status red wind warnings have been issued for three counties so far - Clare, Cork and Kerry.

Status orange wind warnings are in place for Dublin, Limerick, Louth, Waterford, Galway, Mayo, Wexford, Wicklow and east Meath.

In a statement, the Department said schools in all those counties should close tomorrow due to the "significant nature" of the storm.

Gardaí are advising that all unnecessary travel should be avoided in the red and orange counties while the warnings are in place.

They said Limerick and Galway are also expected to go to 'status red' warning, while Dublin, Wicklow and Kildare are also likely to be 'severely impacted' by the storm tomorrow morning.

The status orange warning is currently in place for Dublin between 8am and 1pm on Tuesday.
