Another warning for Galway, Mayo, Clare, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford is also predicting up to 40 mm of rain in the 24-hour period.

The forecaster also says higher amounts are possible on some mountains here.

This warning is in effect until midday on Saturday.

A third yellow alert is in place for Cork and Kerry.

Met Éireann says between 30 to 50 mm of rainfall are expected here.
