There's some good news on the weather front today as dryer conditions are in store after Wednesday's torrential rain.

While it’s a freezing start for most of the country, Met Eireann forecaster John Eagleton said that today will be brighter with temperatures expected to reach 15 degrees.

"Today should be a better day. The rain from yesterday will ease off and it will be a bright day. It’s cool at the moment but temperatures will rise and it will be a sunny day."

Yesterday saw heavy downpours across the country.

The National Ploughing Championships in Tullamore was seriously affected by flooding. 

Heavy rain caused some stalls to close, and forced farmers to move their livestock to dryer ground.

Staff have worked throughout the night to apply bark and mulch to walkways in a bid to make them safer, and have opened four new car parks so that commuters can have a successful journey.
