Well the severe weather warnings heavily publicised by the media have sadly taken an event casualty, as people prepare for the arrival of ex-hurricane Ophelia.
This evening, The Helix in DCU were to host an official launch of Dublin Senior Footballer Philly McMahon’s autobiography “The Choice”
Unfortunately, the impeding storm conditions have put a stop to proceedings and the government and emergency services have asked all people to remain at home and safe until the worst of the storm has passed.
A tweet from the book’s publishers Gill Books this morning confirmed the cancellation.

Following the announcement, McMahon himself took to Twitter to apologise to fans hoping to attend the launch this evening.
