In the year eighteen hundred and forty five on the eleventh of January a great storm took place.
It is now ninety three years ago.
It killed some sheep and cattle and a horse belonging to a farmer in Bannow.There was a young man, coming from Carrig in a horse and cart and as he was in the middle of the trees. One fell on him and killed himself and the horse.So many trees fell that it took a week or more before the body was found.
