Met Eireann have issued a status yellow warning as the sporadic downpours are set to continue today.

However, the heavy showers will die down towards the end of the week.

Friday will be mainly dry with sunny spells and highest temperatures of 14 to 18 degrees.

Saturday will remain dry and clear during the afternoon but the rain will return during the evening and spread across the country on Saturday night.
