Be careful outdoors today everyone, as Met Éireann have issued a national gale warning as high winds are expected to batter the country throughout the day.

And it's not a wind we're going to be able to paint with the colours of either, as gales are expected reach up to 120 km/h. Coastal areas have been warned of flooding due to high seas, and there may be spot flooding in places due to heavy rains. Perfect conditions to be driving home for Christmas in. Someone needs to give Chris Rea a shout and tell him we need a new song.

So have some Kate Bush to anchor you. It's the first song that came into our heads when we tried to think of something 'windy'.
