The town council couldn't even expand its borders out beyond moneen for goodness sake. The riches of rate paying Travenol were beyond them for the past 30+ years. And now the opposite is happening as the miniscule village/town of Castlebar is being subsumed into the larger county entity.
Dust to dust and all that. Who gives a damn as long as ppl shop here?
And please don't let them cut off our supply of Californian orange juice and Israeli grapes and Chilean wine. It could be a long siege.
At least we should be able to make our own crisps if we can get hold of enough blight spray for the spuds during the blight season.
