German Invasion of Carrigaline

Many will remember the witty and hilarious episode from The Only Fools and Horses titled ‘The Russians are Coming’. Well On Saturday last something equally as comical occurred when busloads of German and Dutch tourists, who had arrived on a cruise ship in Ringaskiddy, travelled the short distance to Carrigaline by shuttle bus.

They were seen in their hundreds walking the street, visiting the church, the shops, restaurants, the bars and the hotel, many purchases were made. Several took public transport to Cork or Crosshaven. All assembled at 4pm by the Church to take buses back to the cruise ship. The tourists were very welcome and a valuable boost to the economy of the town.
