A tree falling on top of 7 people travelling in a minbus on January 5th 1991 is one such shock. Last Sunday week the community of Portumna unveiled a plaque to the memory of the 6 people from Switzerland and local lad Joe O Meara (Carrigahorig, County Tipperary) who were tragically killed following a freak accident on 5th January 1991. The names of the Swiss nationals were Ronald Bohlem, Michelle Bohlem, Jose Bohlem, Jean Paul Bonnin, Elizabeth Bonnin, Pierre Landi.
