Schools in Dublin are now being told to stay closed tomorrow due to Storm Barra.

The Department of Education says all schools in status red and orange counties should remain closed on Wednesday.

That initially covered Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim, Cork, Kerry, Waterford, Limerick, Clare, Galway, Mayo and Wexford - meaning Dublin schools had the green light to reopen.

However, a status orange wind warning has since been issued for Dublin - valid from 1am to 7am on Wednesday.

The Department of Education has now confirmed Dublin schools should remain shut tomorrow.

Colleges and universities in impacted counties are also being told to stay closed tomorrow.

Once the status orange warning expires, Dublin and most of the rest of the country will remain under a status yellow warning until tomorrow evening.
