Clean Up Continues After Floods Across The Country


The clean up will continue today, after a day of spot flooding around the country yesterday.

A number of roads were closed overnight while some villages were at risk of flooding.

Persistent heavy rain overnight on Saturday saw a number of areas hit by spot flooding on Sunday morning while in Kilkenny and Tipperary a number of roads remained closed overnight.

Other counties affected included Limerick, Clare, Galway, Donegal, Sligo, Laois and Dublin.

Those counties saw some road closures for a time as Kilkenny County Council warned the Villages of Thomastown and Inistioge could flood Рas water levels on the River Nore were closely watched.

Some sporting fixtures were postponed or delayed as well. A clean up operation is likely to continue this morning in the wake of the spot flooding yesterday.
