Meanwhile, Bantry town square flooded this morning, due to high astronomical spring tides.
Three units of Bantry Fire Brigade assisted Cork County Council workers to pump the flood waters away from properties, although a small number of premises were affected by flood water.
Meanwhile, AA Roadwatch has warned that flooding is affecting many Cork routes today.
According to AA Roadwatch: "Flooding is affecting many secondary routes around Cork with care needed in most areas.
"The N25 is impassable just east of Midleton due to flooding at Roadstones. Use an alternate route.
"The Carrigrohane/Cloghroe Rd (R579) is closed due to flooding. Avoid this route.
"In Mallow, the road through Newberry (R621) is impassable near the Dromahane turn-off due to flooding.
"Flooding is also affecting the Glanmire to Knockraha Rd with this route impassable as well."
