Met Éireann issues wind and rain weather warnings for Limerick

Two separate weather warnings for Limerick have been issued by Met Éireann

MET Éireann has issued two separate weather warnings for Limerick with heavy rain and strong winds forecast between now and Monday evening.

In a separate status yellow rain warning – the second in just over 24 hours – Met Éireann says “heavy rain Sunday night and Monday will bring a risk of spot flooding”.
