When Finbarr Quill got a call at 2am on Thursday morning to say the town of Kenmare was flooded again his heart sank as he realised he faced yet more significant damage.

It could have been a lot worse except for that phone call but that didn't stop his entire business being flooded in the early hours of Thursday morning following a flash flood that wrecked havoc in the town.

"It is a disaster," said Finbarr.
