There was an ad in this week's Argus saying that Jonesborough was closed until 2006 at the earliest. However, there is a new banner hanging from one of the overpasses on the M1 at Drogheda saying that Jonesborough is open on Sundays as usual.

I have no idea what's going on but a quick trip on Sunday will tell all...

Why the hell would you want to go to that kip and sonner it is closed the better it is a disgrace full of Itenerants and Scum selling fireworks to children, illegal material and even guns.

Close it down and stop the funding of terrorism and crime that it produces.

It is not legal to sell fireworks in NI you have to be licensed to do so and the scum there are defying a court order and also it is set to be shut down for good soon a cross border operation with both police forces is underway

I heard a rumour that it was going close down after Halloween when they have all their fireworks sold, mightn't be true though

Wont ever believe it. They have been closing Jonesboro for the past 50 years (kidding) 'for good' and you can bet it'll be open the next Sunday. Sure if they are kicked out by the PSNI, just run 10m to the left into ROI and they can't do anything.

The two forces are working more closely these days. If they both get their acts together they could well do it.

Are you sure?:

I know it's near "The Border Bite" but I don't think it's cut off.

In any case, I didn't think that the PSNI could cross the border on normal operations (similarly for the Garda).

Once. however, I did see a Garda officer directing traffic in Northern Ireland. It was a few metres over the border and he was alerting motorists of an accident. He had taken his hat off, so I presume he was acting in a private capacity until the PSNI arrived. Common sense really, as there could have been further accidents had he not been there.

Just a note to Woody there (anti-fun minister on this thread it appears) what is wrong with goin up the north to buy fireworks, just because our own government don't trust us enough so they make them illegal? Are you sure you're not working for the government? It seems to me you're supporting the fact that Bertie and Co. barely trust us with a fckn sparkler!!
