#Weather - After a relative lull for Christmas Day, Met Éireann warns that the high winds that swept across Ireland at the weekend will make their return today (26 December).
A small craft warning has been issued with west to southwest gales expected to reach force 6 or 7 this afternoon on coasts from Carlingford Lough to Wicklow Head to Carnsore Point.
Winds will also occasionally reach strong gale force this afternoon between Loop Head and Erris Head.
The weather service reports that westerly winds will reach up to 60 km per hour this afternoon and early evening with gusts of 70-100 km at their strongest in west Connacht.
Philip Anthony Toland, from Glengad in Inishowen, Co Donegal, was last seen on Christmas Day near the pier at Ullapool harbour in the Scottish Highlands.
The body was located by a police dive team in the sea near the pier when the search resumed on Monday morning.
It is being speculated that Toland - who has an eight-year-old son - may have slipped and fallen into the water while returning to his boat.
