Thurles Motorists – Beware Of Heavy Road Flooding.

Motorists using the minor, long ignored, Yellow Lough Road (R659) this morning, running south west of Thurles Town, linking the village of Holycross and Pouldine School Junction with Thurles, are asked to please take great care.

Yellow Lough road, Thurles, Co. Tipperary, last evening.

Yesterday evening at dusk, the area close to Cabragh Bridge was extremely flooded, the flood water having burst through a ditch unto the roadway carrying with it, assorted debris including stones.

After tonight’s heavy rain, do expect the worst. (See picture above).

River Suir, Cabragh Bridge, Thurles, Co. Tipperary, last evening.

As can be seen in the picture directly above; further on, the farm lands either side of Cabragh Bridge, on yesterday evening, were also heavily under water, badly flooded by a slow moving and for many years, a choked River Suir.

So again, do remain alert travelling in this area.
