FITZGERALD FIGHTS LIKE A BULLDOG ON CITY COUNCIL

Written by
  CLLR. DAVID FITZGERALD DIGS IN HIS HEELS FIGHTING FOR CUFFESGRANGE AT CITY COUNCIL MEETING. The KIlkenny Journal takes the view that it is most worthy of any community, such as the Cuffesgrange people in this case, to offer serious money to the Council to repair their lane . So we therefore judge David Fitzgerald's conduct at this meeting to save been right and proper in representing constituents who wanted to contribute. This is from a report by left-wing activist Margaret O'Brien - they have it in for Fitzgerald over his support of the Brewery site and the new bridge.…

GO WEST YOUNG MAN - IF YOU'RE IRISH .

Written by
GO WEST YOUNG MAN - IF YOU'RE IRISH. Probably the majority of those on the housing list are immigrants, many of them recently arrived here. That's how the list is so long at nearly 2,800 applicants. Also one time only married persons with families were entertained on the housing list , now it's everybody The question we have to ask is , do we Irish have reciprocal rights of social housing in the immigrants' countries , and if so how many Irish have been so housed around the world to date? The people in Urlingford, Piltown and everywhere else in between, must…

SELF-ENRICHMENT LICENCE SHARE PROPOSAL FROM RADIO BOSS.

Written by
WE THINK THAT THIS IS A VERY BAD IDEA FROM JOHN PURCELL, AIMED AT SELF-ENRICHMENT AT THE LICENCE PAYERS' EXPENSE. If he and his partner John Masterson can't finance a Kilkenny radio station out of the local advertising proceeds then they should leave it to somebody who can! In any event with few people watching RTE TV anymore there should be no compulsory TV licence , it should be abolished .

THE MYSTERIOUS KILKENNY CITY TRUST

Written by
THE MYSTERIOUS KILKENNY CIVIC TRUST. -And the Curator's job. Malcolm Noonan the best for civic position. If you are in public life in Kilkenny or in any way involved in wheeling and dealing concerning the city , the last person you want peering in your window is left wing activist Margaret O'Brien who basically is the civic watchdog these days. And now the bold inquisitive Margaret has started asking questions of her great friend Councillor Malcolm Noonan about a sort of a hidden Kilkenny consortium called The Civic Trust. This happened as a result of a nice vacancy coming up on…

BOBBY AYLWARD HAD SAME CONDITION AS GAY BYRNE.

Written by
BOBBY AYLWARD would know what Gay is going through. Bobby had a similar condition but struck it lucky. He went straight to hospital in Waterford and had the surgical procedure two years ago in 2014 and is in the best of form and health ever since. He even went out and got himself re-elected and is looking powerful again today. Everybody, especially Bobby, hopes that Gay somehow survives this and has some more good years. Tony Ward: Gay Byrne ignored the signs, as did I. Don't make the same mistake As coincidence would have it I bumped into Gay Byrne…
