SLIDESHOW: Storm Darwin batters Limerick with high winds

LIMERICK was battered by winds reaching up to 160km per hour this Wednesday, as Storm Darwin wreaked devastation across the city and county.

Limerick Leader photographers were out catching scenes of the storm’s fury - as were freelancers Sean Curtin, Alan Place, photographic agency Press 22, plus readers, who kindly submitted pictures to us.

The slideshow above features a selection of these, plus a video of the dramatic moment when the roof was ripped from the 139 year old Limerick Boat House - video footage captured by Damien Carton.
