The day before christmas eve on main street Naas, the prolonged cold weather created 4-5 foot icicles which were hanging off the edge of the snow covered roof. They were dangling approximately 30-40 foot overhead until the snow fell off the roof, bringing icicles and hard snow falling down upon passers by, while Gardai stood by, aware of the falling icicles problem.
The people beneath it seemed to escape more of less unharmed from what I could see, but there were very large icicles amongst the falling snow which could have impaled, which dropped about 30-40 foot onto pedestrians. I had been photographing them moments before it all fell.
I called the Gards in Naas and they said that they were aware of the situation and have been in contact with the management company about it. Meanwhile the squad car vanished and I couldn't find any gard to help me warn people not to walk along the path as there are huge icicles falling on pedestrians.
There were cones with signs saying "Warning, falling snow". No mention if giant melting icicles directly overhead.
Eventually three representatives of the management company showed up with tape. They were going to put up a bit of tape about halfway down the path to try and keep people slightly out until I showed them this video and told them that it needs to go way out to the cars or somebody could get killed.
