Thurles Garda Van Overturned By Storm Ali

Gardaí shared a photograph of one of their vehicles; same having been knocked on its side by the sheer force of Storm Ali, close to their Garda Station, outside Thurles Shopping Centre, Slievenamon Road, Thurles, Co Tipperary.

The van was made upright and remained parked outside the Shopping centre earlier this morning.

Thankfully no officers were injured in the incident. Gardaí shared the post with the good humoured title ‘Round 1 To Ali‘, (Muhammad Ali we presume) while at the same time demonstrating to other motorists the real dangers of high winds, the heavy rain, flying debris, fallen trees, power cuts, flooding and overall travel disruption.
