Magical Snow Event 2018 at Mount Leader, Millstreet

While many of us are still snowbound (and trying to overcome a cold) thankfully a thaw is near.   Here with some 36 images we hope to share the magic of the past few days although undoubtedly days which created challenges for many.   Our base is Mount Leader where the kindness of neighbours delivering provisions and delicious soup is so hugely impressive.  Thankfully also electrical power has been maintained and the water supply continues to flow.  While my cat liked to roll in the snow she was delighted to be indoors in the warmth of my home.   And she has been great company during this amazing time.  Transmission of Church TV (although somewhat affected by weather conditions) is brilliant and a great advantage to the parish.  So let’s begin our “magical tour”.   Click on the images to enlarge especially the later selection in “read more”.   Enjoy!  (S.R.)
