Creamery Bridge

The orange weather warning has been withdrawn but heavy surface flooding remains in parts of Kerry.

A status yellow alert is now in place across the country.

Yellow level weather alerts are for weather conditions that do not pose an immediate threat to the general population, but only to those exposed to risk by nature of their location and/or activity.

In Kerry, the county council are advising motorists that the Ferry Bridge to Moneycashen road is flooded and are advised to use an alternate route.

All roads in Listowel Municipal District are now open. Caution is advised as surface water remains on many roads including the Rusheen road, the Tarbert Glin road and the Gortnacoco road near Ballylongford.

The River Blackwater had broken its banks earlier today and the road between Mallow and Rathmore is now passable.

The Castlemaine road is also passable with care.
