Outdoor clothing needed as workers tackle storm damage
Outdoor clothing has been in high demand as council workers in Ireland have been tackling damage caused by severe weather sweeping across the country.
Dublin, Cork, Wexford and other areas have been hit by severe rain, wind and high tides, causing flooding in many areas including Dublin city centre.
There has also been tree damage, with the Irish Times publishing a picture of workers in hi vis jackets and sporting safety helmets dealing with fallen trees and broken branches at the Irish National War Memorial Gardens in the Islandbridge in Dublin.
Such workers may be kept busy, as motorists have been warned to look out for more flooding today (October 17th), while further rain is expected along with tidal surges across the country.
Earlier this week, Dublin City Council announced it would be shutting the floodgates along the River Dodder in the Sandymouth and Ringsend areas of the city, protecting these areas and Clontarf against flooding.
