Large areas of the west and midlands remain underwater this morning, with the Defence Forces on standby to help out.

Roads in parts of Galway, Roscommon and Sligo are closed, and diversions are in place.

Tipperary is also badly affected, with roads closed near its borders with Galway and Offaly.

At least two families in Athlone are to be housed in emergency accommodation after their homes were flooded.

Meanwhile, a status yellow snow/ice warning is in place until midday for Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo, while heavy rain is forecast tomorrow.
