Ex Hurricane Ophelia (previously a category 3 hurricane – the most intense storm ever recorded as far east on the globe) is due to hit the south west of Ireland in the next few hours.  It will then sweep across the island leaving the north coast at about 10pm.  High winds will likely continue into Tuesday.

During these hours this storm will be intense, it has been described as a 50 year storm, the Met Office, Irish Weather Authority, both Governemnts have issued advise.  Stay away from the coast, don’t go out unless you have to, stay safe, secure any loose property, be careful of debris trees etc.

Be prepared – have a torch, charge your phone, charge your power banks, have batteries, a battery powered radio, candles… if you have a land line – it may well work without electricity so make sure it is plugged in.  This storm will most likely pass quickly so don’t panic and stay safe.

This advise is sound – don’t be a hero and don’t put our real heroes (the emergency services) in a position where you have to be saved from your own stupidity.

Soccer Saturday – 22/03/2014 – #TheBigOne

If you follow me on twitter (@tomboyni) you will see that every Saturday I do a couple of massive odd accumulators on the day’s football.

If not I though I would post today’s on the blog as the odds are so huge it would be rude not to share.

These are only small stakes bets for a bit of entertainment whilst watching the greatest TV show in the world…Gillette Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports News.

Make sure you follow me on twitter and here is today’s absolute Monster!
