Meanwhile 17 other counties are affected by yellow level rainfall warnings.
It includes pretty much every county in the midlands and the south except for Kerry.
The first of these warnings mostly affects the west, south and south west, it expires at 6pm.
Meanwhile the second stretches from Carlow to Dublin to Roscommon and everywhere in between.
That runs until the early hours tomorrow morning.
These yellow level warnings say rain is expected, heavy at times and possibly bringing thunder.
There are also fears about further flooding as the ground around the country is saturated, having been battered by Storm Babet last week.
Soil Moisture Deficits (SMDs) show land is saturated or waterlogged which is no surprise but this means the land can’t soak much of the rainfall over the next 36 hours meaning more runoff of water so take driving and stay alert for flooding. pic.twitter.com/9luIiUQzVa
