Deep Freeze

We’ve never had such a prolonged cold spell since I’ve lived in Kilnaleck, and I’ve never seen Corglass lake frozen like this before. Fritz Rennix says he rode a motorbike across it in 1965. Here’s intrepid explorers Craig Lovett, Donal Harten, Damien Lynch and Paul Lynch at least 50 meters from the shore this morning. There’s about 10″ of ice and it seems very solid, people have been out on it on motorbikes, quads, even a Mitsubishi Pajero!
