Schools advised to close following Met Éireann’s status red warning as Storm #Ophelia approaches and batters the West.

Following a special meeting of the Government Task Force on Emergency Planning in response to the imminent Storm Ophelia, the Department of Education and Skills is now informing all schools in areas affected by Met Éireann’s status red wind alert that they are to act on the Department’s advice and remain closed tomorrow, Monday 16 October.

For parents, this means that their children will not attend school tomorrow in an area where there is a status red wind alert already announced or announced in the intervening time.

However, we are yet to have it confirmed by local schools. Keep an eye on Kilmovee Info & local media websites for more information.
