All schools across Wexford will be closed tomorrow…
Both primary and post-primary schools will be closed tomorrow, December 7th.
The Department of Education decision comes following advice from Met Éireann.
Met Éireann have Wexford under an Orange Weather warning while an array of other counties remain either under Yellow, Orange, or Red warnings.
Met Éireann have it is likely that some of the status ‘Orange’ counties such as Wexford could escalate to Status ‘Red’ tomorrow.
It comes as Storm Barra approaches Ireland from the Atlantic Ocean.
“The Department is advising that all schools covered by the Red Alert and Orange warning from Met Éireann should not open tomorrow, 7 December,” a statement from the Department of Education reads.
While the decision is likely to disrupt many, it’s a decision that is likely to save lives.
