The popular riverside walk at Drumboe Wood is underwater.

Last night's torrential rain has taken the stretch that runs adjacent to the River Finn and is a much-used recreational path for walkers from Stranorlar, Ballybofey, and beyond.

It has stopped regulars however as many people enjoyed the alternative routes they've had to take but caution is urged as there are flooded parts affecting these alternative routes too.
