Wexford Creamery has teamed up with Largo Foods to produce 'King Gold Standard Wexford Cheddar and Spring Onion Crisps', which I will be watching for!


They are already out in the shops - Gold Bag ! They are handmade crisps and are retailing at 0.95 cent per bag nice though

Looking forward to getting a bag of them now just to see what they're like. Although then again, cheese and onion is cheese and onion.

Those Gardai have done a fine job with this case........see how neatly they've lined up all those drinks.

Perhaps that's why they haven't had the time to catch some real criminals.

Losing 28 staff to retirement


WEXFORD County Council is losing 28 staff on early retirement but services will be maintained, the County Manager Eddie Breen has vowed.


'It would be foolish to say you can lose these people and they won't be missed.


'Of course, they will be missed,' the manager told Cllr Malcolm Byrne at a council meeting.

Enniscorthy Guardian 28th February contained little of interest.

New Dad jailed for gun in gym bag - on the Promenade in Enniscorthy.

400 protesters march against taxes.

A really famous visitor - the Heineken Cup was on tour and called in to Riverchapel NS last week. Enjoy it while you can as it will be going home to Munster shortly.

Castle to host ICA exhibition to be attended by Govt.Chief Whip - Paul Kehoe - a notable old woman IMO. Wine and Cheese reception on Friday 2nd March - protesters please note! Despite the ICA being founded by a close family relation I will be passing on this one unless I turn up to boo Paulie.

Anyway that's all the news - save for a goat having a record five kids at the Secret Valley Adventure Farm last Friday - I kid you not!

FFS, you would swear they were making their communion the way they are standing there. Useless gits.

Garda Probe after protesters disrupt council meeting.
This is the aftermath of the protests against the new Government charges at NRTC's meeting last Tuesday night.

Works on Quay from the Dunbrody to O'Hanrahan Bridge are due to start in March and will last for 6 months. This includes road resurfacing and the new quayside plan.

Inside:
A hay barn blaze outside Gorey took 24 hours to put out starting last Monday afternoon.

Councillor Anthony Connick reckons a traffic warden in NR needs to back off. Numerous complaints have been made by the public concerning the ammount of fines being issued. Cllr. John Dwyer wants a 'comprehensive report' to be completed on the issue.

NRTC Council Report:
Workmans' Club looks for Council Assistance and help with financing a 20,000 euro buyout of their premises in Mary St. A letter of approval is needed from the council for NR Credit Union.

Creywell (College Rd) due to reopen in April at last.

Works on the clock tower over the Tholsel are going well with a new clock face and repairs and installation of bells inside the mechanism.

Cllr. Kevin Dwyer, who is currently working in Australia due to lack of work here, has gotten approval from NRTC to keep his council seat for 1 year; after a vote was taken.

An investigation into the Albatros site is due to get underway after it was announced to be in line to be put onto the Derelict Sites Register.


Lastly there is a two page spread on places for school tours in the area; and another two page spread on The People of the Year Awards.


Ledger Out!

They were called 'professional agitators '

Hey Ledger .. Put a reminder in your calendar for a celebration party on 30th September .( 2 chances of completion in 6 months )


Creywell (College Rd) due to reopen in April
April in what year ?


Works on the clock tower over the Tholsel are going well with a new clock face and repairs and installation of bells inside the mechanism
And the total cost to the taxpayer is €€,€€€€

Unbelievable .......I heard he is going on Skype to attend Council meetings

Full of hazardous materials ... will be derelict forever

I saw that yeah.

Hey Ledger .. Put a reminder in your calendar for a celebration party on 30th September .( 2 chances of completion in 6 months )


It must be some good job if it would take 6 months. Jesus H Christ.

April in what year ?


I'll guess May 2012.

And the total cost to the taxpayer is €€,€€€€


Did anyone complain that the clock wasn't working? I doubt it.

Unbelievable .......I heard he is going on Skype to attend Council meetings


Kevin is my cousin's partner, and I have great time for him. I know he's not here and it isn't really the greatest set up, but at least he's making the effort to still have an input and is doing his bit for the town.

Full of hazardous materials ... will be derelict forever.


I know, nobody is going to spend millions to dig up 20 feet of the earth to clear the site, certainly not Timac. I would nearly feel sorry for them, thinking they would make a profit by developing the site. They must have known what they were getting themselves in for. We'll be stuck with this for generations.

That sounds like one bizarre setup. How long has it been going on?
