Cork County Council Confirm “Extensive Tidal Flooding”


Cork County Council has confirmed that extensive tidal flooding has occurred along the coastline this morning. The storm surge coupled with spring tides have been the major contributory factors. A southerly wind direction and high wind speeds coinciding with high tides had the effect of increasing the tide significantly.

Locations which have been effected include: –

  • Castletownbere
  • Bantry (15 properties)
  • Timoleague
  • Courtmacsharry
  • Kinsale
  • Carrigaline
  • Crosshaven
  • Cobh
  • Whitegate
  • Aghada
  • Youghal

Cork County Council’s Fire Service and roads crews have attended a number of locations this morning and continue to assist as the tidal waters subside.
