Re: Train Overcrowdiing

I have gotten a seat on the 7.39 train the past 3 mornings. There were plenty of them too.

Last week the 8.14 was wedged, lucky to get something to hold on to!

Re: Embarrassed to be from Donabate

Hi Lady, Very sorry to hear you had that experience, that is shocking behaviour and not what I would expect from the community. I hope whoever took part sees your post and is ashamed of themselves. Mr Blowin, thanks for the tip on opening the bonnet, I'm not sure I would have thought of that in a si...

Re: Waiting in line

Firstly, I'm a non smoker and I agree, asking for two packs is inconsiderate. I think it is ok to ask for one pack of cigarettes at a checkout though its not any different in my opinion to someone running to get a pint of milk they forgot or having someone join them ahead of me with a few extra groc...

Re: To the people with badly installed house alarms

Hi Just to play devils advocate here but if they aren't at home when the alarms are going off I would think that most aren't aware of the extent of the problem. Not everyone is up to speed with all the funtions of the alarms & may not check for alarm activations etc. Perhaps a note through the door ...

Re: Scrambler bikes on old Turvey Golf Club

I would also like to point out that it is not just adults using Turvey to practice, there are also kids up there & have been since the summer. They have been on quad bikes as well as motor bikes. I had assumed they had permission from the owners but from reading the posts it doesn't seem to be the c...

Re: Scrambler bikes on old Turvey Golf Club

Some days they are out there all day long & when your days off at home are spent with the constant noise of dirt bikes it can be very frustrating.
No different to a house alarm going off for hours its very annoying.

Re: Burglar alarms constantly going off - Beverton

This might be a stupid question but if they aren't at home perhaps they aren't aware of the problem.

Would a note through the letter box be an option just bringing their attention to the problem?

I was just having a look at the route for this years run and it is different to last year, by the looks of it we'll be going down the back roads.

Re: Running Club

Hi I did the Swords run last year and it was really well organized and a good route too. A long hill around the 6-7 k mark as far as I remember. The only complaints I heard were from locals who were blocked from coming and going as they weren't aware the roads were closed off. I think the race serie...
