Bad news, trick or treaters: It's going to LASH rain in some counties today

Don’t forget your brolly!

THERE’S A WEATHER warning in place for six counties today with rainfall of 25-40 mm expected.

The warning started from 6pm yesterday evening and will continue until 6pm this evening.

Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick are the counties affected.

Met Éireann says the yellow weather warning is for “weather conditions that do not pose an immediate threat to the general population, but only to those exposed to risk by nature of their location and/or activity.”

So it looks like trick or treaters may need to ask for a brolly along with the sweets.

Other parts of the country are extremely mild:
