Storm Ophelia – update

Dublin City Council has had it last Crisis Management of the day at 7.30pm tonight.  While the city did not suffer the same damage as other parts of the country, there have been more 150 incidents which were mostly minor in nature.

Dublin City Council is still dealing with 70 felled trees and other debris.

Dublin Fire Brigade, along with Roads, Traffic, Drainage and Waste Management Crews will continue to work throughout the night.

As of 7:30pm all major roads in the city remain open.

We expect all Dublin City Council Offices and Services open to be open tomorrow as normal as well as the Just Eat dublinbike stations.

We would request people continue to exercise caution as there is a lot of debris still on the streets.

Owen Keegan thanked all Dublin City Council and Dublin Fire Brigade staff who worked today in difficult conditions to minimise the impact of the Storm on the city.


In case of emergencies the public are advised to contact;

999                                                      for life threatening emergencies.

679 6186                                             for non life threatening emergencies.     for notification of fallen debris.
