“Limerick’s Snowstorm: A Brief but Disruptive Force”

Over the course of Thursday to Saturday night, Limerick experienced complete isolation from telegraphic communication due to a heavy snowstorm. As snow piled up on the wires and telegraph poles during the early hours of Friday morning, this caused significant damage to property and disrupted communication across the city. The weight of the snow resulted in wires snapping in various directions, emphasizing the powerful impact of the snowstorm on Limerick’s infrastructure and connectivity during this brief, yet disruptive, period.
