Roads closed in Tipperary because of severe weather

No major issues have been reported across the county's five districts

Flood defences

The flood defences were mounted at the Quay, Clonmel on Monday afternoon

There are currently three road closures in place in the Tipperary-Cahir-Cashel Municipal District area and the Convent Road, Clonmel is predicted  to flood later today, with a planned closure taking place at 6pm this evening, Tuesday.

All indications are that the road will remain closed overnight and well into tomorrow.  

Significant elements of the flood defences are also now in place, including  elements of level two and level three defences and the situation is continuing  to be monitored by the Clonmel Flood Monitoring Team.

The Status Orange rainfall and Yellow wind warnings remain in place for the whole county, with heavy rain again forecast for this afternoon.

However, the situation appears to be more contained than forecasted and there have been no major issues reported across all five districts.
