Two homes have been evacuated and over 10 farms have been impacted by landslides in Co Leitrim.
Thousands of tonnes of peat have been flowing across acres of land near Drumkeeran since Sunday.
Engineers have been on-site and drones are now being used to examine the damage caused.
Chairperson of Leitrim IFA Desmond McHugh says he has just heard there may be some animals missing:
Fallout from recent heavy rain! Drumkieran IFA Chair Tommy Drugan brought Leitrim Co Chair Des McHugh and myself up to the "Dawn of Hope Bridge". Downstream dwellers and farmers will have some clean-up when this settles. @IFAmedia @LeitrimLive @TimCullinan_IFA @PatMurp87363400 pic.twitter.com/PYkOa58nNu
