Torrential rain caused a “considerable amount of damage” yesterday in Castlerea in County Roscommon.

“There was a lot of flash flooding and lots of premises in the town got flooded, some through the doors, some through the roof systems couldn’t take the amount of water that came and there was a considerable amount of damage done.”
