Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my report.
The only thing that’s worse than a pub with no beer is a pub without customers, and that’s what was like here at the weekend following the further restrictions on the drink driving ban. Hard working honest people in need of a little enjoyment and relaxation at the weekends, are now deprived of meeting up with friends and enjoying some well deserved break. More and more people who live alone condemned to solitary confinement because they cant get out to meet their friends. OK for those to make the rules from their homes in Dublin with every kind of public transport on his doostep. They should be dragged down the country and forced to live in remotest rural Ireland for at least a year.Then they might pay heed to what the Healy Rays are trying to say and do. Mark my words there will be a further upsurge in the number of people suffering from depression, and even committing suicide. I had to get that off my chest.
But it shouldn’t stop there, people should rise up against it, fight to get something back ,for instance free rural door to door transport for a start. I’m really worried about what it will lead to if something isn’t done to compensate our country for this great injustice. I have to leave it there.
The Aubane social Club held their first fundraising Tea Dance on Sunday afternoon and it was a great success. The funds go to the upkeep of their Community Centre. They plan to host another in the Spring.
