Unsettled Weather Forecasted for the Weekend

Met Eireann has issued a Status Yellow Wind warning with strong southeasterly winds expected tonight averaging speeds of 50 to 60 km/h and gusts of up to 90 km/h.  This warning is valid from 21.00 Friday 12th to 09:00 Saturday 13th February.

A Status Yellow Rainfall Warning is also in effect with 30mm to 40mm of rainfall forecast together with strong to gale force onshore southeast winds.  This warning is valid from 00:01 to 12:00 Saturday 13th February. There is also a coastal flooding risk with storm surge levels of 0.25m expected in Bantry and 0.3m in Cork Harbour from tomorrow morning, Saturday 13th and on Sunday 14th  February. 

Another Status Yellow Wind Warning comes into effect on 06.00 until 18.00 on Sunday February 14th with strong to gale force southerly winds veering southwesterly.

Cork County Council Severe Weather Assessment Team (SWAT) is monitoring this situation and has attended the National Directorate for Fire and Emergency Management daily meetings throughout this week.  Following on from this morning’s briefing, the Council advises property owners in low lying coastal Areas to take precautions to protect property in those areas that are prone to coastal flooding. This is due to the potential combination impact of factors such as spring tides, storm surge, high onshore winds, overtopping waves and high rainfall over the coming weekend and in particular at high tide times on Saturday and Sunday. Property owners in areas that are prone to coastal flooding should take precautions to protect their property.

The Council is also advising anyone travelling along the coast to exercise caution, due to high onshore winds and the risk of overtopping waves on roads adjacent to the coast, particularly at high tide times.  Cork County Council’s SWAT team will continue to monitor the situation over the weekend and will issue updates as necessary.

Cork County Council advises road users to be aware of the danger posed by high winds. Driving conditions may be hazardous with surface flooding possible.  Motorists are advised to avoid driving through flowing or standing water and to exercise caution during heavy wind and rain. Motorists are also asked to be conscious of cyclists and pedestrians.

Issues such as fallen trees, flooding and road damage should be reported to the Council’s Emergency Out of Hours number (021) 4800048. 

The strong winds may give rise to localised power outages. In the event of disruption to power supply, please contact ESB Networks at 1850 372 999.  Fallen or grounded wires should be avoided, and the public are advised call ESB in assisting with the identification of location of fallen wires.

In the event of disruption to water supply, please contact Irish Water at 1850 278 278.

Cork County Council will provide updates on www.corkcoco.ie and on the Council’s social media channels @Corkcoco.

Ironman Youghal 2019 - The very beginning of the bike race - The countdown was set 5-4-3-2-1 for the historic start of the Ironman Marathon race which began at Claycastle beach in Youghal on Sunday June 23rd 2019. These cyclists were the first to leave the starting line in not very good weather conditions. 

Over half the entrants were from Ireland with the balance coming from 62 different countries, particularly the USA, every one vying for a finishing place in the largest ever field for any triathlon in Ireland… and bringing a welcome boost of €8m to the local economy. The town had never seen the likes before.

Memories of the Christmas Crib at St. Raphael's Church in Youghal. - The Christmas Crib at St. Raphael's Church.

Seán Fitzgerald and Stephen Leamy talk about the history and traditions associated with the Christmas crib at St. Raphael's Church, Youghal, Co. Cork. The Nativity scene is built by Seán and Stephen who voluntarily give up their time every year to create the beautiful scene depicting the birth of Jesus.

The building of the crib at St. Raphael's goes back to 1904. It is a tradition for the people to take a piece of straw from the manger after Christmas and keep for the new year ahead.

Unfortunately not long after this was filmed the church at St. Raphael's was closed down by the authorities, deconsecrated, and the tradition of building the crib that went on for well over a century is sadly no more.

For Christians throughout the world, no matter the characters, the sight of a nativity still evokes the miracle of Jesus' conception, his humble birth, his ultimate sacrifice and the gift of everlasting life to those who believe. The true meaning of Christmas.
