Wexford County Council has warned of significant flooding in Gorey and Courtown.

Earlier, the gardai issued a traffic alert for some roads in the county with the M11 between Junction 22 and Junction 23 closed in both directions for a time due to flooding.

The council has advised that one lane northbound is now open to traffic.

The council said: "Throughout the evening emergency crews and up to 10 fire tenders, including two from Wicklow, have been working to try and relieve the worst affected areas."

The Gorey to Ballymoney road is also closed due to flooding.

Some roads in Gorey are impassable due to flooding and flood water has entered some business premises.

A section of road under the railway bridge on the Old Arklow road is impassable.

Gardaí say they have gotten calls from business owners in Gorey saying flood water has started entering their premises.

Earlier, the council said they also received reports of flooding in Enniscorthy and Bunclody.
