Enniscorthy Guardian - 7/8/2012

Report on Vinegar Hill Reenactment with nice pics.

Adam Nolan's big fight and RTE's cock-up with the coverage.

A truly unbelievable report about the antics of a species of pondlife from County Wexford who attacked Gary Lineker's son on Twitter with references to him having suffered from Leukaemia and 'a pity that he didn't die'. Feral stuff but why am I surprised.

Controversial Art Exhibition based on paedophile Priest Sean Fortune...

and so it goes on.

havetoquit said:
Does anyone know the correct procedure to follow in the following scenario please: A bathroom and flooring business in Wexford has closed without any warning to customers. I am owed a delivery of tiles which in replacement for a pack of tiles which were defect. The sales person dealing with the issue had reassured me that the said tiles were ordered and dispatched from the suppliers and that he would call me when they were ready for delivery.

It was only after numerous calls and no response that I realised that something must be wrong and have since learned of the closure.

In such cases, I need to know what my rights are in relation to having the above mentioned delivery arranged from one of the company's other branches.

Many thanks if anyone can shed any light on this issue.

Eh, this week in the local papers
