In 1903 there was a man in Tullow who had nine houses nearly built. He went home late one night, and went to bed. When he got up in the morning the nine houses were blown down with the wind, and the floods washed them away.

In the year 1904 there was a man and his wife living in a thatched house on the top of a hill. He went to bed during the night, but later got up, and looked out. He was struck with lightning and killed. The house went on fire, and the wife was saved. She went to another house near, and found it burning also. She saved all in it except one child. This happened in a place named Tumbrane
