There are also massive waves at Gyles Quay this afternoon. 

Met Eireann have issued a Level Orange severe weather alert for Louth from 8am to 3pm on Monday and Residents in Coastal areas are advised to be aware of the threat posed by flooding tomorrow. 

There is a high risk of coastal flooding in Louth tomorrow as result of the incoming #StormBrendan and a higher than normal spring tide. 

As Storm Brendan tracks to the northwest of Ireland, southerly winds will reach mean speeds of 50 to 70 km / hr with gusts of 100 to 120 km/hr, higher in exposed areas.
