A spokesman said: "Due to updated information received from Met Eireann and the National Emergency Coordination Committee on the ongoing adverse weather conditions, Dublin Bus is not in a position to resume services this evening".

Speaking on The Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk, he said: "Safety is absolutely paramount, people should be getting home or staying at home as much as possible, avoid non-essential journeys".

"It is planned that a full schedule of services will resume from tomorrow morning at 5am".

"Generally across the country we are expecting mean speeds of 65-80kmp/h, with gusts of 110-130km/h, and then in those coastal counties of Cork to Mayo, we could well see gusts in excess of 130 km/h".

"This resumption includes all Bus Éireann services, the Expressway network, Eurolines and GoBÉ services". We hope to return services from 19.00 or when we can safely operate our services.

A number of flights to and from Dublin Airport have been cancelled.
