Cork Flood & Covid Relief

Cork city experiences 'worst flooding in years

''Several streets in Cork city centre are under a foot of water after the worst flooding event to hit the city in several years.

Businesses which were already hit by Covid-19 restrictions are now facing clean-up and repair costs after this morning’s high-tide swamped low-lying areas of the city centre.

While last night’s high tide passed with just a few incidents of pool flooding along the low-lying quays of the southern channel, stronger south-westerly winds and heavy overnight rain combined with this morning’s high tide to push levels above the 2.6m mark.''

This GoFundMe is set up as a relief fund for those affected by the floods and the level 5 restrictions to hit at midnight tonight. Money is aimed to be used for  food packages, assistance to families, and other supports that SVP designated can provide for those in need. All donations will be directed to  the local Saint Vincent de Paul. 

Any donations will help many  households affected by the flooding and restrictions.
