An Doineann 3..2..1938
One night in January last year there was very heavy thunder and lightning.
The lightning fell a few perches from a house - belonging to a man named Robert John Peoples over in the townland of Doaghmore and it tore up the ground.
That same night the lightning split a new house belonging to McBride over in Downings.
I remember this night myself.
About eleven years ago there was a very big storm the biggest one my mother can remember.
It blew the windows out of our house and the slates were rattling on the roof. The roof was taken off a barn belonging to Robert Alcorn and it was carried away up to the upperend of Glinsk.
