Gardaí warn of impassable roads as heavy rain and floods continue

The N25 Cork to Waterford Road between Killeagh and Castlemartyr is currently impassable and diversion routes have also deteriorated.

GARDAÍ HAVE THIS evening warned a number of roads across the country are impassable due to flooding.

This is how Ireland’s rainfall radar is looking tonight, with heavy rain to continue into tomorrow morning. Met Éireann warned sleet on northern hills will likely add to flooding in affected areas.

The N25 Cork to Waterford Road between Killeagh and Castlemartyr is currently impassable and gardaí said local diversion routes have deteriorated further. Cork County Council has not been in a position to repair them and further traffic delays are expected tomorrow morning.

Gardaí said some minor roads are also impassable and not suitable for vehicles.

“All road users should obey diversion signs and drive appropriately for the weather and road conditions. Some minor roads remain flooded and motorists should obey relevant road signs.”

They also advised drivers not to use their satellite navigation systems when on diversion routes as they may take them on impassible roads.
