Road Users In Tipperary Take Care

While the continuous and often torrential rain experienced here in Thurles and the surrounding countryside today has now ceased, readers are advised to drive with exceptional care tonight.

Expect to encounter severe flooding on many Tipperary roads, including particularly in the areas of Moyne, Templetuohy, and close to Drish Bridge on the Thurles – Dublin route.

Storm Brian this weekend, while not expected to be anywhere near as damaging as Storm Ophelia; nevertheless our friends in Met Éireann has issued a Status Orange wind warning for a number of coastal counties to come into effect on Saturday morning.

Those using the roads are also warned that there may be trees weakened by Storm Ophelia, that could still be knocked over by strong winds, expected this weekend. Land and property owners are therefore requested to check for effected trees / dangerous overhanging branches on their property boundaries.

Meanwhile, sadly, the funeral Mass of Co. Tipperary native Mr Michael Pyke took place today at the Church of the Holy Family, in his home town of Ardfinnan, Co Tipperary; before being interned in St. Finnian’s Cemetery.

The 31-year-old was fatally killed when a section of a tree hit him on a road close to Ardfinnan on Monday afternoon last, at the height of Storm Ophelia.
