  2. There was a great windstorm in 1903. It was the twenty sixth or twenty seventh of February, the day and the night before the fair in Templemore. Many people who were going to the fair the following day had to get hatchets and cut trees out of their way which had fallen across the road.
    There was much damage done to houses. James Maher's house in the Orchard Lane, Shanakill, Roscrea was damaged. The thatch and even the scraws were stripped off all the back and one end, as it is a hipped house. This house is now owned James Maher's son Timothy.
