VILLAGERS in Ardgroom on the Beara Peninsula had a close encounter with one of the biggest gorse fires seen in the area for many years recently. The fire, the biggest of several that took hold in Cork and Kerry lit up the night sky on Saturday night and Sunday morning and measured almost five miles across and could be seen for miles around.
