There's an old saying: 'A picture tells a thousand words'.

Based on the jaw dropping footage captured by Longford engineer Mark Cunningham earlier today, it's an adage that will undoubtedly strike a chord with many readers and followers of the Leader tonight.

Mr Cunningham, a well respected engineer, has kindly provided this website with exclusive, never before seen imagery of Co Longford concealed in reams of thick snowfall.

In what is being billed as the most severe storm to hit this region and country in recent memory, this recording lifts the lid on the record breaking snow accumulations that has brought the county to a standstill.
