More wet weather, with heavy showers and prolonged periods of rainfall are expected throughout the week across the country.

Heavy rain is expected in places, especially in parts of Munster, Connacht and west Ulster.

Flood-impacted farmers

The recent wet weather has put many farmers under pressure, with many of these unable to get livestock out onto pasture.

In light of this, the Individual Farmers of Ireland have issued an appeal for farmers to help each other out following the recent flooding which impacted many parts of the country.

The group is seeking to assist farmers who may be in difficult circumstances in trying to provide for their livestock.

Recent weeks have seen record levels of rainfall in some areas across the country in the month of February, according to Met Éireann.
