Storm Ali caused a lot of disruptions for Ireland where more than 250,000 homes and businesses were left with no power.
Emergency services were also called to the scene on 19th September, where storm Ali had swept a caravan from the cliff top whilst the owner was asleep inside.
The woman was found dead at the scene on Wednesday morning as Storm Ali hit the West coast of Ireland. She was thought to be in her 50’s from Switzerland.
She has now locally been named as Elvira Ferraii. The sun reported that she had only just arrived in Connemara the day before when she rented a bike from somewhere local.
The caravan was believed to have been swept off the cliff onto the beach at around 7:45 am that morning. This took place at Claddaghduff, near Clifden in Co Galway.
Storm Ali was the first named storm of the season.
A search was carried out and the woman’s body was found. Elvira Ferraii was pronounced dead at the scene. Her body is now being examined for a post-mortem examination.
Images from the scene show the caravan broken up into pieces and slowly being washed away by the sea.
Storm Ali produced gusts of wind up to 89 mph that were recorded on the coast of Galway.
Irish President Michael D Higgins expressed his condolences to the family of Ms Ferraii.
He said: "Today's strong winds can result in dangerous situations and I would urge everyone to heed the warnings by the authorities and take caution when travelling or when out in the open, I was deeply saddened to learn that Storm Ali has already claimed one victim today in Claddaghduff, Co. Galway. As President of Ireland, may I express my deepest condolences to her family. I would also take this opportunity to pay tribute to all those, in statutory and voluntary organisations around the country, who are helping and stand ready to assist their fellow citizens and who are working to maintain essential services round the country."
