Crews from Carlow Fire and Rescue Service are battling a large gorse fire on Mount Leinster. “These are very difficult conditions for our fire crews to work in,” said a spokesperson for the fire service.

The road to the Nine Stones from the Bunclody to Myshal side is closed and will remain so for several hours.

The fire service is asking people to stay away from the area until further notice and are asking people not to light fires outdoors for any reason.
