A fine but windy bank holiday weekend here in Castlebar. Fine enough to go up on the roof but windy enough to get blown off. Thousands of disgruntled Castlebar households finally decide to join the swing vote and point their aerials towards fine gael headquarters - errhh? - towards the Balla Deflector. Tool and Equipment Hire Companies such as Castlebar Tool and Hire report a brisk ladder business this fine weekend as DIY enthusiasts and Premiership football fans climb onto the roof in protest. MGH is gearing up as a significant number of A&E entries are expected as these enterprising TV addicts slide down the slippery roof slope. One lady fan of Coronation Street will have to have her hip replacement done again due to a fall.
