Main St in Blackrock has been closed due to more floodiing following this afternoon’s high tide. Motorists are being asked to avoid the area for now as there is no alternative route through the village. This photograph of the village was posted by Fergal McCabe in the past hour.

The latest flooding follows a weekend of turmoil in Blackrock. Tidal surges and winds of up to 75mph meant enormous waves smashed the village last Thursday night and over the weekend flooding the centre of the village and making it impossible for traffic to get through. However thanks to defence works carried out on Saturday, the impact of Sunday’s high tide was minimised greatly. .

But in the past few hours, the main street in Blackrock has once again become flooded.
