Floods in Dublin

Following a heavy thunder storm on the east coast of Ireland in June 1963 the heavy rain makes an impact on Dublin city centre and causes floods in the suburbs of Kilmacud and Dundrum.

Double-decker buses driving through flood water are to be seen, as is a flooded suburban garden, a damaged bridge and pedestrians using boxes and newspapers to cover their heads in the rain. A young man swims in the flood water.

This report for RTÉ News was broadcast 11 June 1963.
