The Cork city skyline is a stark contrast to the city centre where the water has been coming in steadily since March, with residents reporting seeing their homes submerged by the rising waters.
It comes after Cork city council has declared a State of Emergency, with a total of 20 flood alerts issued since April.
There are fears that Cork could become one of the worst hit areas in Ireland when it comes to water as the city and surrounding areas are experiencing some of the biggest flooding in the country.
Cork City Council’s Director of Public Works, Michael O’Connor, told TheJournal.ie that the city has been inundated with the most recent rainfall, with the water level rising by nearly 20 feet in a matter of minutes.
He said there is a significant increase in the amount of flooding occurring in Cork and that a number of streets have been inundate.
The council has issued 16 flood alerts in the city since April, including two in the past two days.
O’Connor said that there have been many reports of the city having to shut down roads for a period of time as people have been forced to move from their homes.
Cockneys National Park has also seen a spike in flooding, with one man dying from the condition, he said.
The National Park is a national park and is situated on the edge of Cork city, with it being the main tourist destination for the area.
The city has received around 3,000 complaints about flooding in Cork since the start of the flooding, according to Cork City Council.
