Ye lads could make balls of even a the simplest term like the midlands ?

Have ye ever thought of a career in the public service ?

The clue is in the name.

I'll give ye another clue.

Subtract all the counties on the coast and the border counties,

and then if you still can't work it out from there, use some common sense, or ask someone who has some.

They meant three county councils which happened to be in or almost in the midlands.

It is just a symptom of the low standards which prevail during holiday periods.

You seem to have it all worked out:

Carlow?
Kildare?
Limerick?
Roscommon?
Tipperary?

Carrick-on-Suir in and Longwood out?

The Border? The Midlands existed as a concept long before the border was heard of.

We await your response, smart boy.

The tone of this post is both unpleasant and unnecessary. Enough said.
