River pollution (Part 2)


Dear Mr. John Gormley
I am writing to you again to let you know that nothing has happened with the problem we have with the river in our estate and as you can see with the latest video the pollution is still ongoing
I sent this e- mail to the local council again
Dear Sir or Madam
Please follow the link below and take a look at the environmental damage that is been done to the river in our estate
This pollution is now going on for the last 16 years and in spite of complaining so many times nothing has happened to stop this pollution
This is again to remind you of the constant damage we have to put up with
Please find the source of this pollution and prosecuted those responsible
Thank You

The Elections are over!

12.06.2009 The Elections are over!


Just when I thought the local elections were over I came across these election posters

Somebody should tell these gents that the elections are over.

One of these posters was in Dublin and the other was here in Wicklow Town!

Fianna Fail the New Landlords

Fianna Fail the New Landlords

Will try to hang on in government buildings for as long as they can there is no other way for them

Their banker buddies and developers need them to hang on for another two years in the vain hope that the Irish people will have forgotten most of the corruption by then and hopefully the world economy will have by the gotten better by then

What is surprising is that they still have a 20% showing in the polls

This is a sad reflection on those who have yet again invested their thrust in this corrupt organisation

Maybe we Irish have not yet shaken off the inferiority complex we have inherited over the centuries

We are used to bowing down to the local Landlord,

Have Fianna Fail taken his place via the local councils??

Wicklow elections 2009

17.23 Saturday June 6th

Just like the invasion 65 years ago, we here in Wicklow are waiting with anticipation to find out who is going to invade this building.

Will they live to their promises to do a better job? God only knows.

But I will try to hold these public office holders to account, by publishing from time to time their deeds in office!

One such good deed would be to support and fund a self help group for the unemployed of Wicklow.
