Valentia Observatory in Co Kerry has recorded its highest level of rainfall on a single day since records began there over 150 years ago.

There was 105.5mm of rain in 24 hours.

Last night's torrential rain led to the closure of a number of roads on the south Kerry peninsula.

A significant land slippage blocked part of the Wild Atlantic Way tourist route between Baile an Sceilg and Portmagee.

A number of houses in the fishing village of Portmagee were badly damaged when flood waters entered during the night.
