Fermanagh residents were in for quite a shock last week when they opened the curtain to find the county under a blanket of snow.

It was snow joke last Friday when travel advisories from the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) advised residents to avoid Enniskillen town due to heavy snowfall.

They said several vehicles have "become stuck due to the snow and some roads may not be passable".

There were problems on roads right across the county with blockages caused by snow on debris in roads in Irvinestown, Lisbellaw, Belleek, Enniskillen and Lisnaskea.

One significant blockage on the Sligo Road near Letterbreen was a broken down lorry. However, the blockage did not last for long as local farmer John Patrick Jr cleared the blockage by towing the lorry away with his tractor.

A video captured by neighbour Stephen Wilson has over 127,000 views on The Impartial Reporter Facebook page with many others praising the work of farmers across Fermanagh during the snow fall.

The Northern Ireland Electricity Networks (NIE) website reported that over 1,000 customers (domestic and business) were without power in the Derrylin area on Friday morning.

In the nearby Derryad area of Lisnaskea, 249 NIE customers were without power for a period.

Across the county, many schools closed as students and parents enjoyed a snow day, while some including Cara, Cian, Lorcan and Finn McAloon who sled their way to school in Maguiresbridge on Friday morning.
