FOUR families in Kilcredaun, Carrigaholt were marooned on Monday when high tide hit the picturesque townland, which is home to an historic lighthouse. The flooding has resulted in the townland of Kilcredaun on the Loop Head peninsula being rendered effectively an island.
A total of six houses were cut off by the flooding in recent days. The grounds of the nearby O’Curry’s Irish College has also been hit by flooding following the breaching of a wall.
Meanwhile, a number of houses in Carrigaholt village were hit by flooding when the village wall was breached at high tide.
Locals are very concerned that their difficulties will be exacerbated should further storms hit the area in the coming days.
