In this photo of another casualty of Storm Ciaran, a tree on the coast has fallen so far that it is completely upside down with just the root ball now visible from the road

It is now around two months the Island was visited by the great storm named Ciarán, but in so many places in the Island its effects are still visible.

Nicole Hamel took these pictures in the east of the Island – just before Christmas. They show the countryside there – after the storm has passed
