Speaking on Thursday afternoon, Garzyna Witkowska, who is from Poland and lives in Ennis, said, “It was on Wednesday at about three o’clock, it was parked beside my workplace. I looked out the window and saw trees falling, so I started running out to move my car from the back to the front, where there are no trees. My keys were stuck in my pocket and that delayed me and that’s why I survived.”

She was just seconds from the vehicle when the tree fell on it and  said that having a number of keyrings in her pocket was all that had delayed her.

The vehicle was a relatively new Dacia Duster but she knew things could have been far worse. “It’s only nine months old, nearly brand new but I’m very lucky. I was shocked at first but I’m so delighted I was safe.”
