Fire and road crews responding to spot flooding incidents in Co Wexford

Wexford County Council has received reports of flooding in Enniscorthy, Bunclody and Gorey.

LAST UPDATE | 3 Nov 2022

FIRE AND ROAD crews are responding to incidents of spot flooding in parts of Co Wexford.

Met Éireann forecast that south-east Leinster should expect “heavy showers or longer spells of rain” today, though this rain should die out overnight.

Wexford County Council has received reports of flooding in Enniscorthy, Bunclody and Gorey in the past hour.

Meanwhile, images on social media show flooding under bridges in Gorey, while Carlow Weather has advised motorists to “avoid Gorey is at all possible”.

Senator Malcolm Byrne added that “there are significant flooding problems in a number of areas in Wexford as a result of heavy rainfall,” with some roads impassable.

It follows reports of a suspected tornado in the county yesterday, with one local farmer telling South East radio that the scenes in the Foulksmills and Clongeen area “had to be seen to be believed”.
