14 counties issued with a Status Yellow warning for this weekend


Ladies. if you were confident that the kids' return to school would signal the arrival of our annual Indian Summer, we have some bad news for you.

According to the good folk at Met Éireann, we are in for one seriously wet weekend, with forecasters issuing a Status Yellow weather warning.

The Met Éireann forecast has confirmed rainfall for 14 counties this weekend, including Dublin, Carlow, Kilkenny, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford.

The warning went into effect this morning at 10am and will continue until Sunday at 06.00.

Thankfully for Electric Picnic revellers, Co Laois didn't make its way onto the aforementioned list, but that doesn't mean you can forego wellies in favour of sunglasses, ladies.

It is Ireland, after all.
