People in Ireland are being told to stay indoors as the country is battered by the worst storm in more than 50 years. Three people have been killed and more than 350,000 homes are without power after Hurricane Orphelia hit the country with winds of up to 170km/h. Sean Hoskins is originally from Wairarapa and is now a forestry contractor in County Kilkenny.
