The harbour of the Co Cork fishing port of Castletownbere was full on the morning of Monday, October 16, as trawlers stayed in to avoid ex-Hurricane Ophelia. Met Éireann, the Irish weather service, warned that Ophelia was likely to be the most severe weather event to hit the country in over 50 years. Schools and universities were closed across the country, and travel services were widely disrupted. The UK’s Met office said Ophelia had been downgraded to an ex-hurricane, but would still bring “significant impacts to Northern Ireland and western and northern Britain.” Credit: Facebook/West Cork Photo via Storyful
