The recent storms have caused a lot of damage to the O'Loughlin family farm in Ballingate. My Dad described the storm as "terrifying". Below I've put a photos together to show the scale of the damage. Particularly sad for us is the disruption at the white gate to the front avenue, and the main tree in the front garden being felled. This tree was a favourite place for us to play as kids, but no more play for future generations of O'Loughlins in this tree. It will be sawed up for firewood.
