A number of roads out of The Neale and in the surrounding areas are closed today, due to a dramatic rise in water levels over the weekend.

Roads from The Neale to Clonbur, Kilmaine, Ballinrobe and Lough Mask have all been affected.

The Neale to Kilmaine road, the R334, has been closed since Friday with local diversions in place.

A number of houses across the South Mayo region have been marooned by floodwaters and Mayo County Council crews worked over the weekend, providing sandbags and pumps on a case by case basis.
