Met Éireann has issued a number of warnings for heavy rain and flooding for the south and west for Saturday – the day the slurry ban ends in parts of the country.

Three status yellow rainfall warnings have been issued for parts of the country by Met Éireann, with heavy rain and flooding likely in parts.

The warnings come as farmers in parts of the south and east prepare for the end of the closed period for slurry spreading, which ends at midnight on Friday.

A warning has been issued for Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Wicklow, with between 25 to 40mm of rain likely to fall in the 24-hour period from 6pm on Friday to 6pm on Saturday.

Met Éireann has said that flooding is likely in places, with higher amounts likely in the Wicklow Mountains.

In an update to its previous warning, counties Galway, Mayo, Clare, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford can expect 25-40mm of rain in the 24-hour period from noon on Friday to noon on Saturday, with flooding in places.

Like the previous warning, higher amounts possible on some mountains.

Finally, a warning is in place for Cork and Kerry, with 30 to 50mm rainfall in the 24-hour period from 11am on Friday to 11am on Saturday.

The heaviest rainfall is expected to be between noon and midnight on Friday and Met Éireann has warned that there will be a risk of flooding, with highest risk in south and west Cork, as well as south and west Kerry.
