Several roads throughout Ireland are impassable due to flooding this morning

Take note before starting your journey.

A number of roads throughout Ireland were closed or impassable on Thursday morning due to localised flooding after persistent rain over the last 24 hours.


AA Roadwatch have warned motorists that parts of Leinster and Munster have been the worst affected, with a number of roads closed or impassable in Kilkenny, Tipperary, Cork, Wexford and Wicklow (see details below).

Motorists have been warned only to drive through water if they know it’s not too deep for their car and if they have to drive through standing water, to drive through the centre of the road at the highest point.

On wet roads, motorists have been advised to reduce speed and to keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front and to be particularly mindful of vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists.
