Executive Summary:The aircraft (EI-FKD) was on a scheduled flight from Dublin (EIDW) to EICK. The en-route segment of the flight was uneventful. A standard ILS approach was flown to runway (RWY) 17 at EICK. Shortly after landing, the aircraft weather-cocked right, into wind and drifted towards the right-hand side of RWY 17/35. The aircraft departed the right-hand side of the paved runway surface approximately 305 metres south of the intersection of both runways and continued on over soft ground for a further 195 metres, before finally coming to a stop. There were no injuries. The aircraft suffered some minor propeller and tyre damage. Some additional damage was caused to the runway infrastructure.

(Causes)
Directional control of the aircraft was lost as a result of aquaplaning, which was induced by the presence of standing water in the general area of the intersection.

The lack of a formalized procedure at Cork Airport to detect and report the presence of standing water on the runway.

Use of a landing roll out technique, which was inappropriate for crosswind, wet runway conditions.
