A sinister side effect of the recent fine weather occurred at Tarbert on Friday last when a bolt of lightning caused damage to some buildings and resulted in petrol pumps at Dunnes Gala Store being out of action for several hours.

The lightning struck at around 7.30pm during a thunderstorm and proved a frightening experience for those who witnessed it. Thankfully, no one was injured in the strike and only minor disruption was caused.
