TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND READERS IN AMERICA: WHY THE KILKENNY JOURNAL ENDORSES DONALD TRUMP. by Michael McGrath, Editor/Publisher. TRUMP FOR WORLD PEACE. Mr. Trump’s impulsiveness and overheated rhetoric alienate many voters, he has trouble dealing with critics and would be wise to discover the power of humility. But neither candidate will ever be called to the dais to accept an award for moral probity and character. And we are already distressingly familiar with the Clinton way, which involves turning public service into an orgy of influence peddling and entitlement designed to line their own pockets — precisely what a disgruntled…

INSOMNIA IS DIFFERENT. With respect Insomnia could be different! It's a specialist coffee dock in reality with its specialist coffees. And Bobby Kerr is a Kilkenny man whose dad brought jobs and prosperity to Kilkenny with the Newpark Hotel and the Kerrs were also involved in promoting Kilkenny though the years as well. They have been a great family for Kilkenny, to the foremost in every way, for charities and city development. Oh and I have never met Bobby Kerr and was only on nodding acquaintance terms with his fantastic father who was a fabulous local entrepeneur. His story is…

GARDAI SHOULD THINK AGAIN AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. These arrests are from across the whole of south county Kilkenny. But isn't it a shame that all this great work could be undone in a single day of the projected Garda strikes. The Kilkenny Journal therefore calls on Gardai in the local stations of Kilkenny , who would be reading this, to ignore their strike leaders and continue to serve the people and the State so well , and not to wreck great work already done. We feel that the Garda representative bodies should take advantage of the offer…

KILKENNY IS ALMOST AS BAD. We have seen flats in the city centre, substandard dwellings at Upper Patrick Street in The Village, converted old houses at James Green where the migrants are packed in like sardines . We have also seen hostels , old hotels and guest houses at John's Bridge with six to a room. Well, with a million more people packed into Ireland in the new millennium what do you expect? There are no laws against unscrupulous landlords like this - and there won't be. Because the Irish government and the EU pushing mass immigration need every hole…

WHY ACCOMMODATION IS SO RARE IN TODAY'S WORLDRack-renting Irish landlordism massively on the increase. The one big problem is mass immigration. A landlord can get more from the immigrants they prey on as they double up in houses and flats and together can provide more rent for the greedy landlords than Irish tenants. For instance Paddy the Butcher rents his houses in James Green to the ladies and their families that you see in the long black burkha headresses and veils there. He would be getting double the rent! He is only one of dozens of landlords in this city…

GLOOMY JAIL-LIKE EXISTENCE OF ST. PATRICK'S INMATES. HSE TO BLAME. Report out today. Toilets and showers were found to be dirty and even unusable in the Kilkenny centre, access around the complex was limited to residents who were kept for hours every day to their own quarters with nothing to do and no facilities to engage themselves in, but compelled to sit in their own quarters all day bored in a prison-like situation. They were confined to their own wing all the time with no access to fresh air or any outdoor leisure time. Basically they were held like prisoners in…

JOHN McGUINNESS SHOULD FACE FACTS - HE'S NOT WANTED IN FF. There is an attitude in Fianna Fail that John is to be avoided, not to seen with, even to be ignored. This is particularly so since his revolt against leader Micheal Martin in the last few years while party members see it - even here in Kilkenny - that Micheal Martin saved and recovered Fianna Fail. John now has nil influence on the party no matter what he says or proposes. And if it came to it most Fianna Failers would glad to be rid of him from the…
