ESB crews are working to restore power to homes in east Galway today after a mini-tornado hit the county last night.
Stormy conditions caused trees to be uprooted, farm buildings were damaged and even some gravestones were toppled at the local cemetery in Clonfert.
It comes as Met Eireann issues a rainfall alert for the next 24 hours with heavy thundery downpours expected and a risk of flooding.
Met Eireann forecaster is Siobhan Ryan.
"Some very heavy rainfall totals expected now for the remainder of the day - but I'd expect some torrential downpours to occur across the eastern parts of Connaught and even moving up into parts of Ulster as well" she said.
"So nowhere really out of the woods now for the remainder of the day".
"And when that rain does occur it'll be torrential".
"So really very inclement weather for the remainder of the day; and added to that mist, fog and very thundry conditions in some regions as well" she added.
