An Irish tourist is fighting to survive amid the devastation caused by flooding at a popular tourist attraction in the city of Cork.
The Mall of the Isles is home to an array of attractions, including a museum and a shopping mall.
It is a popular destination for the families and the young, who flock to the area for its beaches, museums and shopping centres.
The hotel has also been hit by flooding and is currently under reconstruction.
It is now only able to accommodate about 10,000 visitors, mostly tourists from Europe.
But for a family of four and their baby, it is a welcome relief.
It was in the middle of the night on Saturday when the hotel woke up and realised it was under water.
The mother of three said she was worried about the baby’s safety.
She said: “I just knew I could not let my baby go under the water, so I started to cry.
I was terrified and it’s such a good thing I am doing this because I know the worst would have happened.”
But she said it was not a total loss.
“We have been going to the Mall of Isles for 10 years and it has been such a great place for the family,” she said.
“They go there for everything from a wedding to an Easter Sunday dinner and I feel like I am making a difference.”
