County Kildare badly hit by rainfall


Parts of Naas are hit by flooding

Sallins Road, Naas

Driving conditions are hazardous in parts of County Kildare today due to incessant rainfall.

Water is lying in pools and floods at a number of locations - as this picture of Sallins Road, Naas,  testifies.

The rainfall has prompted Met Eireann to  issue a status yellow weather warning for five counties in the east of the country - including Kildare.

It remains in force until 9pm.
