On Friday night, Met Éireann issued a rain and thunderstorm warning which applied to 15 counties - including the provinces of Connacht and Munster, as well as Kildare, Laois, Offaly and Westmeath.

Originally scheduled to be in place until 6pm on Saturday, it appears to have been replaced with the new Galway and Mayo warning.

Meanwhile, Met Éireann's national forecast states that there will be showers or longer spells of rain over the western half of the country on Saturday afternoon.

Some of these will be heavy with an isolated thundery burst of hail possible.

Elsewhere though, showers will be more isolated with the best of any sunny breaks in the east and southeast.

Highest temperatures will range from 11 to 17 degrees in a moderate to fresh and gusty wind that will be strong at times along coasts.

As for Saturday night, there will be further showers or longer spells of rain, some of which will be heavy at times.
