Yellow alert remains in place for Leinster and Munster

There is a rainfall warning in place this morning for parts of Leinster and Munster.

The yellow alert, which started yesterday, will remain in effect until 9am, and forecasts up to 35 milimeters of rain.

Conditions are set to improve later today, but tomorrow will be wet again - bringing the risk of more flooding.

The army were out overnight clearing roads in Cork, Galway, Clare, Kilkenny and Westmeath.

Commandant Seán Ó Fátharta has said people are relying on his troops: “So we’re providing access to people to their communities and their houses.

“We are also filling and distributing sandbags to the area in Gort in Galway for example,

“We have deployed flat bottom boats in areas such as Clonlara and engineers to man pumps there.”
