FORTY members of St Peter’s GAA Club had a lucky escape in May 1967.
The bus they were travelling on left the Derrytrasna Road, toppled ten feet into a field and overturned.
No one was seriously injured but one youth had to be treated for shock.
When the bus came to a halt the passengers tried to break the windows to get out but eventually they escaped through the roof.
The players were on their way to take part in the quarter-final of the O’Hare Cup.
After their ordeal they lost 15-12 to Sarsfields.
The bus was extensively damaged and the remainder of the journey was made by car.
