It’s hard to take in the extent of the damage done by the flooding in Cork last night. Clonakilty, Douglas, Blackpool, Meadowbrook in Glanmire, Ballyvolane and elsewhere flooded. We were woken around 1am last night by the loudest thunder I ever remember hearing. The storm passed right over Blarney but I think the town escaped the worst of it.

Cleanup and water is receding thankfully:
The Cork Independent are posting updates here.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen an area flooded that much and the water be as still as the middle picture.
It’s right next to a river and in a natural dip in the land unfortunately. The playground and green area next to it was under about 1m of water earlier!
Noooooo! KCs was flooded too because they’re in that area in Douglas. Their future is uncertain. Ron – as you’re likely the only one to see this comment, KCs make the most delicious fast food, or used to. 🙁
