Wouldn't expect Waterford to last long, high tide at 09.33 tomorrow will likely close it again as its just a little lower than this mornings one 3.8m to 3.7m.

It was much worse, flood defence breached on the quays and out along the railway, unlike the other closures.

High tide in Cork tomorrow evening (20:53) I predicted to be higher than the one this morning.

While Dublin/Kerry services weren't affected, it's worth noting that the floods caused access problems to Kent Station.
