WATCH: Shocking footage shows Glenbarrow Waterfall raging down from Slieve Bloom Mountains

Crews from Laois County Fire and Rescue Service, staff from Laois County Council and the public have been out since early Sunday to prevent possible flood damage at their homes and properties.

Laois fire service and county council staff respond to stream of flooding incidents.

Snow melting on the top of the Sleeve Bloom Mountains and a heavy rain on Saturday night has caused water to flow rapidly down from the mountains into Laois towns. 

This footage captured by Gilly Guilfoyle at the popular Genbarrow Waterfall shows the extent on the raging river as it flows down towards the towns.
