The forecaster, which issued a yellow alert meaning "be aware", said: "It is likely that some coastal routes, seafronts, and coastal communities exposed to these winds will be affected by spray and/or large waves".

Over 1000 homes were without power in Inishowen for a number of hours yesterday evening as strong gales and heavy rain swept the peninsula, however power has since been restored.

The AA also report that there is flooding on the R152 approximately 2km before Kilmoon Cross and motorists are being asked to avoid the road.

Storm Eleanor is the fifth named storm to hit the British Isles this winter.

A statement says: "There is a power failure affecting equipment and Network Rail, who own and maintain the equipment have staff attending to assess and are working with the power companies to restore power as quickly as possible".

Winds of such speed would meet the Status Red level which was enforced by Met √Čireann last October when Ophelia struck.

Mr Hogan said parts of Galway city that are not normally susceptible to floods were hit.

Martin Young, deputy chief meteorologist, said: "Over the next few days, the recent unsettled weather, brought by low pressure systems coming from the Atlantic will be replaced with more settled weather as an area of high pressure builds and moves across the UK".

Mr Hogan urged members of the public living in towns along the south and west coasts to "keep away from the coastline if you don't need to be there".

"Thankfully there was no major structural damage and nobody injured that we know of". Cold weather shelters are being provided in 22 of the state's 67 counties.

High tide in Galway this morning, January 4.

"Storm Eleanor has swept through and the eye is now crossing the North Sea, although there will continue to be strong gusts through the day", she said.

Winds of 90mph have seen tens of thousands of homes left without power, ripped off roof tiles and felled trees and fences as Storm Eleanor wreaked havoc across the country overnight.

"Stay up to date with local authority and national warnings and assess your surroundings prior to departure on any journeys while storm conditions pass through", they added.
