Re: Shoreline Hotel

Hiya Lofty,

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

Re: Beaverstown golf club

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. When I go for a Sunday Lunch I expect something substantial. Roast Beef, Chicken, Steak, etc with the ...

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.

Stray Dogs (2) Portrane.

Two Dogs roaming in the Burrow, Portrane. One is a young German Shepherd, the other is a Wire Haired Terrier, both wearing collars. Terrier's name on collar is "Biscuit", I think, couldn't find my glasses, couldn't read number. Beginning to annoy some people, would recommend collection ASAP.

Child Car Seat Loan.

Would anyone have a car seat suitable for a two year old I might borrow for two Weeks ? Daughter visiting with her little Girls (one 2 years old) from Saturday and I'm loath to buy one for such a short visit. Would deeply appreciate it and promise to mind it ! Thanks.

Any recommendations ?

Looking for an alternative to Keelings for Sunday Lunch relatively close by. Since the Star closed in Swords I don't know of any other places that serve a decent Sunday carvery. Would welcome any suggestions but carvery only. Thanks.

Re: Dognapping !

I can assure you Pat that both owners had to pay €350 to have their Dogs released from the pound. I have no idea how that sum was arrived at especially as one Dog was in custody for 2 nights and the other for only several hours.

Anyone had their Dog impounded recently by what appears to be two outsourced private Dog Wardens ? White van, both dressed in white shirts and black trousers. Seem to be operating on a commission as the charge for having the Dog released is €350. Dogs are being taken even if they are collared with c...
