CORKONIANS are being advised to check the Cork Airport website in case of delays and cancellations to flights. A spokesperson for Cork Airport said that while everything is currently running smoothly disruptions may be a possibility.

"The first wave of aircrafts departed on schedule. Everything so far has departed there have been no diversions received into Cork," he said. 

"However, the best advice I could give to passengers is to check in advance of travel with their airline given the very strong winds that are prevalent right across the region at the moment."

Meanwhile, bus services have been cancelled for the South Route 257 Macroom/Millstreet/Killarney.

In Cork City, Routes 208 and 207 services are currently experiencing delays of up to 40 minutes heading inbound to Cork city centre due to congestion.
