Ophelia roads update: Tipperary County Council continues to work to clear fallen trees

Tipperary County Council has released further updates on roads that have been blocked either fully or partially by trees and powerlines brought down during Hurricane Ophelia's rampage through the Premier County.

Despite the worst of the winds clearing Tipperary, motorists are being advised to take extra care as some roads may remain blocked by trees and branches overnight.

The council outdoor personnel worked until night fell within the municipal districts to clear roadways of debris and fallen trees as a result of Ophelia.

They will return to work at first light on Tuesday, October 17.
