    Personally, I had a very poor all round experience with Senator. Bad fitting and poor quality, door was in less than 3 years and the barrel broke and the track had to be refitted.

    I've heard mostly positive things about Costellos in Limerick.

    Yes I would second this. I got Paul Harris in to upgrade our windows/doors 18 months ago. Fantastic products and excellent service. Can't recommend them enough

    The Peregrine falcons are back nesting on St. Mary's Cathedral again. They can be spotted atop the gargoyle facing O'Shea's funeral home.
    Bring binoculars.

    Their shop in Manor in Tralee is stripped bare, the murmurs around are that the stock was taken away to be sold online but who knows.

    The one in Killarney went a step further and took down their shopfront signage, too. Usual one-upmanship :D

    Hello all, I'm looking for a reliable car detailer in the area.
    It is not a big job -only a scratch on the door. Do any posters know someone who would be willing to do such a small job?

    Absolutely sickening. My brother is down there to volunteer and waiting to be called on. Sent me some videos, complete and utter morons whoever started it.

    I know there was a big party at Dinis last night and I really hope if they're the culprits, they're fined or something at the very least

    This is a pretty shocking sight. The extent of the damage from this will be massive.

    Fair dues to your brother... may he and all the others volunteering all be safe


  • Registered Users Posts: 534 ✭✭✭ LilacNails


    Awful, heart breaking. Some cnut is responsible. Poor wildlife have their beautiful habitat destroyed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 534 ✭✭✭ LilacNails


    Dobman, what kind of help is your brother doing? I would nearly head out myself if I could be of any help.


  • Registered Users Posts: 75,021 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    Was the fire deliberately set, god love the animal habitats wildlife, hope no one injured in the fire service and volunteers

    I've no idea. He is a car enthusiast and was just out for a spin, saw what was going on and stopped. Michelle Cooper Galvin was down there to take photos for the papers and she told him who to talk to if he wanted to volunteer. It could be something as simple as getting drinks for the lads as they come in for a break, I didnt ask him.

    It seems like the kind of situation they will need volunteers for but I dont know how things will work cos of covid. Might be worth contacting someone before heading down to see if they need a pair of hands.

    I was talking to one of the animal rescue non profits...the animal help net... if it devastates lower down in the main forest... vets/rangers may be buzy in kilarney helping injured animals etc and if there is an overflow of care needed before being released back into a habitat (if their own survives).. that may mean..room needed to be made in the local animal shelters so maybe fostering cats/dogs to help..and extra food/bedding supplies needed...will let you know more if I hear anything.. hoping it wont come to that...maybe Dob's brother knows more as they are on the ground...I am rehabbing leg...so trying to get word out on social media...maybe you could aswell?

    At the moment its speculation but a party in Dinis and a midnight fire emergency reported seems to add up to clowns starting a fire at the party and it spreading, rapidly!!
