A number of roads in County Tipperary remain impassable this morning.

Crews from Tipperary County Council will recommence clearing fallen trees while the ESB will be tackling fallen power lines.

The N74 Cashel/Tipperary Rd remains closed between Cashel and Golden due to fallen power cables.

The Templemore/Dunkerrin Rd is still closed due to a fallen tree.

There are reports of fallen trees on the Mountain Rd (678) outside Clonmel.

Gardaí report a large number of fallen trees in the Tipperary Town area, including the Dundrum Rd and Emly Rd.

Chair of the National Emergency Coordination Group – Tipperary man Sean Hogan – says the clean-up will take some time.
