Second Offaly road closed due to serious flooding

Offaly County Council have advised that the road between Fortal Cross/Kilmaine towards the Birr/Clareen Road L4OO42-1 is now closed due to flooding.

The road is known locally as the Old Clareen Road and is the second such closure in the same area of the county today after heavy rain raged overnight and this morning.
