Met Eireann has placed the entire country under a yellow rain warning, with an orange rain warning issued for four counties; Tipperary, Cork, Waterford and Kilkenny in the south of the country.

Met Éireann are forecasting periods of intense rain, which is expected to lead to flooding, with the heightened warning remaining in place until at least 5:00pm, and with the yellow warning remaining in place until midnight tonight.

Emmett Street and the junction at Thomond Road and Emmett Street, near the Thurles foot bridge, are already showing signs of flooding despite flood barriers being in place. No sandbags appear to be in place.

Two pumps are in place in an effort to offer some solution to the problem, brought about by the total neglect and failure to remove obstructions from the bed of the river Suir.

Motorists are being asked to take great care and if possible, to avoid the area.
