Although the winter in Northern Ireland tends to be cold and wet with lots of rain and wind the climate is such that we seldom have snow of any significance. During the last few years we have had light snow falls which last for no more than a day or two before disappearing. The end of December 2000 was different, about 6 inches of snow fell within a couple of hours on the evening of 27th December and promptly froze hard. According to the news reports it was the worst snow in 18 years and in a country that is not equipped to deal with such conditions road, rail and air travel was severely disrupted for several days.

However, the husband of one of our members was determined to make the most of the snow and early on the 28th December he donned his winter woollies to venture out taking a series of photographs of the village under the pristine white blanket that covered the countryside.

For the enjoyment of our viewers several of these photographs are included in this page and are shown in the thumbnails below.
