This is the moment the roof of a school in Ireland was ripped off by the force of Storm Ophelia's winds. A man in his 30s died while clearing a fallen tree in Tipperary, while a second man died in Louth, northeast of Dublin, according to the broadcaster.

Some 120,000 homes and businesses were without power as the storm ploughed through the region with more expected.

The storm, downgraded from a hurricane overnight, was the worst to hit Ireland in half a century.

Around 170 flights from Ireland's two main airports at Dublin and Shannon were cancelled.

"The damage was more in the south of the country, it will be days before it all gets back to normal".

The storm slammed into Turner's Cross stadium in Cork, and pictures emerged on social media of the severe damage to the roof of the Derrynane Stand.

Northern Ireland is set to face the worst of the storm, but the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for a number of areas including the North West.

Prime Minister Theresa May spoke to her Irish counterpart Leo Varadkar on Monday afternoon to offer support.

Britain's meteorological service put an Amber Weather Warning into effect for Northern Ireland from 1400-2100 GMT, saying the storm posed a danger to life and was likely to cause transport cancellations, power cuts and flying debris. "At the same time, much of northwest Scotland has been removed".

"These strong winds are forecast in association with the northward track of ex-Ophelia across or near to the west of the British Isles".
