The rainfall warning, which was issued yesterday, warned of flooding in certain parts of southeastern counties, Waterford, Wexford, and Wicklow.

It was due to expire at 8am this morning but has since been extended until midday due to the "significant" amount of rain that has fallen.

Met Éireann said: "Updated Status Orange - Rain warning for Waterford, Wexford, Wicklow following significant accumulations of rainfall, there will be additional accumulations this morning, with flooding in places."

This is one of many weather warnings issued by Met Éireann this week.

Yesterday, the forecaster issued a status yellow weather warning for 10 counties.
