Government intervention demanded!

by Michael McGrath

Staff at Winstons told The Kilkenny Journal this evening that the fabulous fashion and household store has just six weeks before it closes.

Management have made no statement at all so far.

The Kilkenny Journal feels therefore that intervention to save the classic city centre store should be made by the authorities now.

In particular we feel that local minister John Paul Phelan could have a role in garnering any possible State help and support.

If the government can afford four billions a year to finance mass immigration into the country then surely they can afford to intervene to save our city stores.

And they could certainly make a start by recalling the massive rates demands on city businesses!
