Just minor flooding was reported in Cork city centre this morning as high tide passed at 6:21am.
A small amount of water spilled on to the quays around Morrisson's Island, Probys Quay and Union Quay, but no major floods were reported.
Up to 100 staff from across the Council were on site across the city centre from 5am this morning, to clear any floods that may have occurred, supported by colleagues from Cork City Fire Brigade, Cork City Civil Defence and An Garda Síochana.
