Dublin Fire Brigade Had To Deal With Flooding Last Night


If they weren’t busy enough extinguishing fires across the city this morning, Dublin Fire Brigade had another incident on their hands last night.

The torrential rains over the past 48 hours led to flooding in some areas, with the crew called out to deal with significant spot flooding near Lusk.

Thankfully, things look set to improve on the weather front with sunny spells and scattered showers.

“Tonight will be mainly dry at first, with clear spells, but outbreaks of rain will extend gradually from the Atlantic, reaching most parts by morning. Hill and coastal fog will develop also. Becoming windy, especially in Atlantic coastal counties, with strengthening south to southeast winds developing,” said a Met Éireann spokesperson.
