Notable wind convergence in place so it could be along this line that the heaviest rain occurs.

Exceptional rainfall likely tomorrow.
Looks very heavy and persistent and will surely lead to local flooding

2116 update from met eireann

Thursday will be wet in Munster and Leinster. Rain will be heavy at times with risk of localised flooding. It will fall as sleet in places in the afternoon and evening. Connacht and Ulster will have small amounts of rain and the northwest will be mainly dry. Highest temperatures of 5 to 10 degrees and becoming very cold in the afternoon.

Admittedly, I was coming off the mountains as well, but the rain got noticeably easier as I headed from the mountains north up the N11 into town this morning. A few spots on the R755 were already covered in fairly big puddles - wouldn't go as far as calling them spot flooding (mainly the usual spots), but pretty early in the "event" all the same.

Steady moderate rainfall here in Ardfert, 8.2mm so far. I See a lot of rain showing up on the radar around Killarney, will be interesting to hear reports later.

Ditto near Arklow circa 200kms away
If this stalls here as expected, quite large totals will mount up by dark
