PHOTOS: Cork kayakers refuse to let floods dampen their night out

Nothing was going to keep these guys indoors.

THE HIGH WATERS rendered some Cork roads impassable and caused problems for many business and home owners.

However, some people have just got on with things, going about their everyday business, just like any other… except they’re in a kayak.

These kayakers were spotted out for a paddle on the South Mall in Cork last night.

But they didn’t stop there. Refused to be defeated by the floods, they decided to go about their normal errands. As you do.

First thing’s first. For a good night on the town, cash is needed, so time to hit the hole in the wall.
