Cork city floods were quite bad on the 4th of February. I was in Cork for a few nights and I had my camera with me walking around looking at the floods in the city centre. Also having the odd pint in a few of the bars of the city, BDSM, Arthur Maynes and the Mutton Lane for example. About time that Cork city got the flood damage protection system that it deserves, surely it would work out cheaper in the long term.
West Cork Storms seem to be endless the last few weeks down here on the Beara peninsula it is causing some mighty havoc to the seas. Lots of damage to the coastline and indeed the electricity grid too. The wind has been knocking down electricity posts and the community have been experiencing power cuts of a few hours at a time. A series of photographs here from Garnish Pier, the Dursey Sound, Balydonegan and Reentrisk. It was difficult to keep the lens clean so some images are a bit smudged.

Waves crashing through the gap of the Island and mainland at Garnish pier, this is low tide.
Neil visits Balydonegan Strand on a wet and windy January day to try out his new video camera in the car thanks to “le Parrain” Jean-Luc Raffa. A nice windy walk along the beach was great for Butter our dog to get out of the house and have a run. The old copper mines pier is very visible after many years thanks to the big storm that we had earlier in the month, which created lots of damage throughout Ireland.
