There was great excitement about the town this week as Hurricane Ophelia ‘battered’ the town. Once it was announced that the country was closed on Monday, off-licences and supermaakets were cleant out of it, in that order.

It may be over now, but it was fun while it lasted. Last week’s humanitarian disaster was great for the town.
