I hope that he is prosecuted and fined heavily, ...

Re: New businesses in village

Absolutely- SuperValu needs competition. Aldi or Lidl would be a great addition to the area as would some new restaurants. With all the new young couples moving to the area, there is a great opportunity for cafes and restaurants. Keelings is a great pub. It would be great if Smyth’s upped its game,...

Re: LAPTOP REJUVENATION SERVICE.

Very, very likely. Try running "taskmgr" and then checking under the "Startup" Tab. You'll get a partial list of Programs launched at start up there. You can start disabling the items you're absolutely certain are not required there one at a time. Reboot after each one to check for adverse behaviour...

There might be old unwanted programs, junk or software no longer needed. A lot will be running Windows 7 but too under spec to run Windows 10. For a very, v...

Just wondering why you referred to the Waterside as "The Wagon Wheel" in the Post leader. Was it an older name ?

Lofty, I tried it last Sunday, I won't be going again. It is a nice Club House, beautiful surroundings and friendly Staff but the Menu is crap. All that was available was little more than Bar Food.

Bike Rack

Four cycle bike rack, free standing or ground mounted. With the spate of bicycle thefts in the area it provides a secure anchor to chain cycles to. In perfect condition (despite poor picture) with a rust proof galvanised finish. Based in Burrow, collection only (surprisingly light weight), €35.
