Fire crews from Ardee were among those in attendance yesterday evening as a fire destroyed the premises of All-Seasons Lawnmowers in Cookstown in Ardee.
Emergency crews were called shortly after 6.15pm on Thursday to attend the blaze that was engulfing the premises at Cookstown, just off the N2 outside of Ardee.
