Kildare County Council are urging the public to take care on the roads tomorrow with temperatures expected to drop to -3 tonight which will result in dangerous conditions.

The public are also being reminded to when traveling on roads throughout the county today, and in particular local roads where flood waters may not have receded as yet.

“The Kildare County Council front line services, namely the Road Crews, the Fire Service and the Civil Defence have responded to numerous calls throughout yesterday and today in regard to issues caused by the heavy rainfall experienced yesterday,” said a spokesperson.

“The main focus yesterday was to ensure that homes were protected. Our teams provided sand bags where required and pumped water away from affected areas where possible.”
