Flooding in Cork City sees traffic diversions in place

Conditions have been improving in the past few hours.

THE RIVER LEE in Cork has today burst its bank, causing flooding and traffic diversions.

Heavy rain had seen vehicles redirected on Wandesford Quay, Lancaster Quay, South Terrance, Father Matthew Quay, Morrison’s Quay South Mall and Union Quay.

Conditions have reportedly improved in the past few hours.

Met Eireann is saying this evening that heavy rainfall is expected to move in a northerly direction, falling over Ulster before eventually subsiding. 

Maximum temperatures are predicted to reach between 12C and 14C.

Gardaí were earlier warning of spot flooding in Monaghan on the N2 Dublin to Monaghan Road but this has now subsided.

Earlier this evening, vehicles from Cork City Fire Brigade were in attendance at the scene of the flooding.
