There is a risk of severe gales or storm force winds developing across Ireland nearly next week as the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia tracks north from the Azores toward Ireland.

As a result, Dun Laoghaire Marina has issued a caution to its bertholders at the country's largest marina to ensure sufficient fendering and strong mooring warps are in place on each of the 500–boats at the Dublin Bay facility.

According to the Dun Laoghaire Marina weather service, Weatherweb.net, the possible high winds expected on Monday are due to the predicted track of Cat 1 Hurricane Ophelia.
