This is based on the recent epidemic in Australia - our flu season follows theirs - where there were twice as many cases and deaths as the year before.

There are concerns a new flu-strain could be one of the worst seen here in decades.

Aussie Flu has also targeted the United Kingdom, where it was revealed that nine people were admitted to intensive care or dependency unit with the potentially killer strain.

Dr Kevin Kelleher, Director of the HSE's Health Protection Surveillance Centre said: "Influenza-like illness has increased in all age groups except in those aged 0-4 years".

The HSE also confirmed that the number of reported cases has doubled in the past few days, with 73 people hospitalised, leading to fears that an outbreak could well reach the UK.

"I don't give specific numbers when it's less than 10 because people could be identified".

People who fall sick with "Aussie flu" will suffer from typical flu symptoms but they will be far more severe.

The flu virus indirectly resulted in the death of 1,000 people in Ireland last season.There are three main types of flu virus - A, B and C - and hundreds of different subtypes. But a number of tragic deaths in Australia also showed how the H3N2 flu strain can prove lethal to healthy adults.

In an Instagram post that has since been deleted, professional fighter Conor McGregor revealed that he had been struck down by the Australian flu over the Christmas period.

The 29-year-old shared a lengthy Instagram post saying he and "half his family" had contracted the virus. Half the family hit with the Australian flu virus and some even left in hospital with it.

"One of the most intense few days I've gone through". I'll leave that with the rest of the bad behind me in 2017 and take with me the many great experiences I've had this year!'

The A virus has caused some of the worst outbreaks in history, including the infamous Spanish flu in 1918 and swine flu in 2009.

UFC star Conor McGregor was said to have been bedridden after being hit by a bout of the Australian flu.
