Met Éireann have issued a weather warning for hailstones between 12.00pm and 3.00pm on Wednesday.

Hailstones are a year round occurrence and can create very dangerous driving conditions.

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) has produced a short information video, with advice on what to do if you encounter a sudden shower of hailstones.

The RSA says cruise control should be also switched off when driving in hazardous weather conditions.

Some tips to be aware of from the RSA are to:

  • Reduce your speed without breaking
    Warn other drivers with your hazard warning lights
    Avoid sudden steering movements or breaking suddenly
