Tipperary road still closed following torrential rain and flooding

Tipperary roads hit by flooding.

 

 

There is flooding on the Faugheen/Carrick-on-Suir Rd (R697) at Cregg.

Gardaí advise taking an alternative route.

Flooding remains an issue on some routes this morning, especially in parts of Leinster and east Munster.

Only drive through water if you know it's not too deep for your car. If you have to drive through standing water, drive through the centre of the road as that is the highest point. 

On wet roads, reduce your speed and keep a safe distance from whoever is in front. Be particularly mindful of vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists.
