We are set for yet more rain, with Met Éireann putting a status yellow rain warning in place from this afternoon.

It looks like it is going to be a wet evening, with Met Éireann putting a status yellow weather warning in place from this afternoon.

The forecasters have warned of “heavy rainfall” later on today, which will continue overnight and into Saturday. It is expected that between 30 and 50 mms of rain will fall in regions across the country.

The affected counties, where the warning will be in place, are Galway, Mayo, Sligo and the whole of Munster. The warning comes into effect from 3pm today and will be in effect until 3pm on Saturday.

Is your farm ready for the rain?Check out the checklist below:

  • The first thing to do is to ensure all machinery, equipment and any farm utensils are locked away securely in weatherproof sheds. Move any larger equipment to higher ground and away from trees, in case of lightning.
  • Make sure any pesticides, herbicides or chemical products on the farm are locked away in a cool, dry place. It is important for animal and environmental safety reasons that these do not leak into water supplies.
  • A designated relocation area for your animals should be prepared in cases of extreme weather conditions, which leave other areas flooded or inaccessible. Ensure all sheds and outbuilding roofs are secure.
  • Make sure all feeds are well secure, in a dry area and accessible at all times.
