Cork County Council say Bantry was the worst hit town in the county by Storm Barra

28 of the town’s primarily commercial premises were affected this morning by High Tide

The tide remained high for a number of hours due to the storm and wave action but is has now receded with the next high tide not expected to have a similar impact.

Flooding also occurred on the Back Street in Youghal which has receded.

Cork County Council is aware of instances of fallen cables, trees and debris together with roads flooded across the county.

Currently the R571 between Castletownbere and Eyeries is impassable and has been closed. Members of the public are being asked to avoid unnecessary travel and remain indoors.

Longfields Bridge and Killavullen Bridge are currently closed.  The Dursey Cable Car remains closed and will reopen following inspection.
