Cork Floods – the Bishop, the Dean, the Restaurant and the Media

It wasn’t just a cup of coffee that was the draw for the Bishop of Cork (Dr Paul Colton), the Dean of Cork (the Very Reverend Nigel Dunne), and a selection of  journalists and a photographer to a favoured regular haunt (Nash19, Princes Street, Cork)  re-opening the morning after the tidal floods during the Bishop’s pastoral visit to Cork city centre on Wednesday, 5th February.  It was twitter, and the Cork spirit of friendship and cooperation!

Ever-vigilant Cork photographer Michael MacSweeney snapped this shot of the group taking a break – over coffee, chat and a tweet – from their various duties (pastoral and media) in the course of morning visits to Cork the morning after the floods:
