Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow weather warning for Carlow and the rest of the country due to high intensity rainfall over a relatively short period of time for many areas on Saturday night associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Ernesto.

Totals up to 20mm could occur quite widely with higher falls locally.

The situation will continue to be monitored, the forecaster said.
