A kind-hearted member of popular band Crystal Swing, Derek Burke, has generously offered his services to anyone who finds themselves in difficulty in the flood waters of Midleton.
The thoughtful musician took to Facebook and offered to use his tractor to "pull anyone out of a flood" or provide a tow to the garage for any stranded motorists.
"We all need to help each other," he said.
Crystal Swing are a country and western musical group from Lisgoold in Co. Cork.
The family group comprises mother Mary Murray-Burke and her two children, Dervla and Derek Burke.
Crystal Swing rose to national fame in February 2010n when a video of their song "He Drinks Tequila" went viral.
And the Corkman had yet another lovely offer to make to his Facebook friends and followers.
"If somebody needs a spin to Midleton for work I can take one person," he added.
Now that's just the kind of community spirit we need.
