    The website is better then last year’s one. That’s not saying much.

    And it’s flattering plagiarism, but plagiarism all the same that some one has lifted a post I made here a few months ago and used it on the ballinastreetfestival.ie. Of course, there’s a lot of spin added, but they even copied my spelling mistake ‘Belleek Forest Part’, rather then 'park'. It's a classic...

    Hey Monument,
    Rather than see it as plagiarism, see it as a recognition of your own observations and a thank you at the end of it all.

    Its up there because it was the best run down on reasons to visit that i found on the day of looking while developing.

    Regards,
    ;)
    BTW Cian, dont take it as a personal thing dude.
