The worst flooding I can remember was during storm Frank, this was the local park. Around 60mm fell but they also held the dam for too long which caused Macroom to flood.

See Wexford and Wicklow have been left out of the warnings. Wonder will that change... GFS has lots of rain for both.

Radar looks like it has stalled. Nothing in Meath. What time are we due rain, if any?

Raging out there.

Hardly paused all night..

The cats are in and out like furry yo-yos....wind weary and rain raddled. Dreading checking what seedlings etc I had already planted out as with the southerly they are very exposed..

Out of fuel so going to be baking a lot..chilly day

Stay safe Corkonians......my home for many years down there
