Early morning flooding in the back streets of Youghal, Co. Cork, on Tuesday, 20th, October, 2020.

Emergency services comprising of the Youghal Fire Brigade, Youghal Coast Guard Unit, Youghal Gardaí and council workers were busy dealing with the flooding and diverting traffic all morning.

The new sea wall barrier that was built in the past year help protect flooding in the Market Square area and all the way leading down to the Mall.

Is it cleared now? It would have been very helpful if some diversion signs were put up around the town this morning. I had no clue this was happening as I went out to do the school run.

Well done to RNLI, the Garda and Council workers. You are amazing.

Oh my goodness!!

That’s extreme

That was the Mall a few years ago. Put the pressure on folks to get the wall finished, you are CITIZENS and are entitled to protection. ASK FOR IT, NO DEMAND IT and don't wait for the next flood

They are lucky to have a flood door

Love the photo

Of course flooding was prevented by the wall tommy. Even though the opes were open and ferry slip has no gate yet. Solution continue wall up the rest of the quays and to hell with the begrudgers. Sorry but when the answer is so simple. Dont start arguing about it just do it for the piece of mind of those who live in the flood area.

I thought the new flood walls along the quays would stop this.

The wooden pieces at top of ladders dad ere not in place and letting water through and no door to slip in pla ce all allowing water to bypass barrier and cause flooding

Wondered where the name of the street came from.🛶🚣‍♀️⚓

INSPIRING SUBSTITUTE SCORES FOR LIVERPOOL FANS
By Christy Parker

Strange things have abounded this year and the trend proved consistent in Youghal recently when photos began appearing of local Liverpool fans posing with what appeared to be the Premier League trophy in someone’s backyard.

The impressive looking trophy was actually a replica of the coveted original and its arrival in Youghal for a day belongs like the best acquisitions in the ‘man who knew a man who had a friend that knew someone’ category.

The connection with Youghal threads a link through Teds fan Ted Lee, an unnamed friend of his, the Liverpool FC Dublin Supporters Club and Crumlin hospital. Between them they managed to get hold of the replica for a day.

Scoring for charity
The initial idea was to display the trophy in Hennessy’s Bar on South Main Street as a two-pronged fundraising initiative for the hospital and for its ICAN (Irish Children’s Arthritis Network) unit.

“Our daughter Mia, who has juvenile arthritis, has received excellent treatment at ICAN and my wife Angela, our sons Jamie and Darragh and I wanted to repay them in some small way”, says Ted, who has supported Liverpool for 45 of his 52 years.

Plans to manage the display within Covid-19 restriction guidelines were on second thought jettisoned after people started posting messages about it on Facebook alongside photos of the original ‘relic’ as Liverpudlians would regard it.

It was decided to defer the display until such time as the virus was eradicated, or at least less of a threat -similar to what happened to Manchester United, Liverpool fans might suggest.

Lions man
The lookalike replicates the original down to the minutest detail. It stands 3’ 5” (104 cm), 2ft (61 cm) wide and weighs a considerable 4st (25.4 kg). The details include the base on which the names of the champions are engraved which weighs 2.5st (15.9kg). (It is necessary to use the old standard measurements as it was 30 years since the scousers last held it!).

According to website Premierleague.com, the original is made from solid sterling silver with the crowns cast from 24-carat silver gilt. The bases comprise malacite, “a semi-precious stone found in Africa” and the green on the base, derived from semi-precious African opaque stone, represents the playing field.

The design is based on the theme of the ‘three lions of English football". Two of the lions are featured above the handles and the captain of the winning side becomes the ‘third lion’ when he “raises the trophy and its gold crown above his head”. The replica by contrast is made from resin and silver electroplating but that’s between ourselves.

The replica was set to remain in the Lee household, secure in its leather case, which was probably blessed by sweat from Steven Gerard and anointed with shampoo that had dripped from the head of Jürgen Klopp.

News of its whereabouts eked out however, prompting several of Ted’s fellow Liverpool fans to invite themselves round to his house in The Rise. “We kept the numbers low and made sure Covid-19 restrictions were observed”, recalls Ted as he reflects on his sudden surge in popularity. “And everyone who posed for a photo left a donation for the hospital for which we are very grateful”.

Miracle comebacks
Unconfirmed reports indicate several wheelchairs and a barrow load of crutches formerly associated with Liverpool fans became instantly redundant after their owners made physical contact with the silver icon. Three others had their sight restored and one man found his hair re-growing after twelve years of baldness.

On the downside unprecedented traffic congestion was reported in upper Cork Hill due to a sudden mass exodus of Manchester United fans from the area.

Ted Lee is threatening to bring the Champions League trophy to town also when his fundraising initiative eventually proceeds. Civil unrest cannot be discounted.

Happy 96th Birthday to Mary Anne Smyth from Sarsfield Terrace, Youghal who celebrated her birthday on Thursday 8th October 2020.
Mary Anne is pictured holding her treasured photo of her father Paddy O’Sullivan and family at the place known as ‘The Rope Walk’ which was located beside the Youghal Town Walls taken back in the circa 1930s. Her father was known as Paddy O’Sullivan ‘The Rope Maker’ as he made the ropes on this strip of land which ran parallel to Raheen Road and near the old Fever Hospital, now long gone.

The Smyth’s are one of the most well known families in Youghal and Mary Anne is fondly called “The Queen of Sars”. Mary Anne had a lovely day with loads of birthday cards, presents and calls from well wishers on the phone.
Mary Anne likes nothing better than sitting beside the open fire in her home and taking to her family and friends. She says “Light the fire for a bit of company” She loves to sing her father’s favourite song “If Those lips could only speak” which he used to sing to her mother. She said “You can’t bury a memory”.

Happy Birthday Mary Anne from your huge amount of friends from near and far. Hope you had a wonderful day with your family and many more birthday’s to come.

The films curation, development and screening has been promoted by Youghal Business Alliance with the assistance of the Cork County Council Arts Grants Scheme 2020 and supported by Youghal Credit Union and The Regal Cinema, Youghal.

The historic Regal Cinema first opened its doors in 1936. In recent years it has undergone extensive restoration and refurbishment to bring it back to its original Art Deco splendour.

There are 3 free of charge scheduled screenings for the public to avail of on the following dates: Wednesday 23rd September @ 4pm, Tuesday 29th September @ 7pm and Wednesday October 7th @ 4pm.
