Storm Dennis to cause localised flooding

A yellow status rain and windfall warning is in place as Storm Dennis hits Ireland

While Carlow and Kilkenny will escape the stronger winds currently experienced in the West of Ireland, flooding is the main concern locally.

Wexford and Waterford are under an orange weather warning.

Kilkenny County Council are making sandbags available in various locations.

Conditions are set to remain severe throughout the weekend.
