1 Mins read

Trees made famous by the TV fantasy drama Game of Thrones have been damaged in the overnight storm.

Gales of up to 60mph swept across Northern Ireland overnight.

One of the Treee’s at the Dark Hedges, a tunnel of beech trees on the Bregagh Road near Armoy, came down during the turbulent weather.

The trees have become an international tourist attraction since featuring in the hit series Game of Thrones. The Stuart family planted the trees more than 200 years ago along the entrance to their Gracehill House mansion.

About 150 were planted by James Stuart, but time has taken its toll over the centuries and now fewer than two thirds remain standing.The Dark Hedges became a huge draw for tourists and TV fans after they appeared, albeit very briefly, in the closing scene of one episode of Game of Thrones.
