Re: Water and other political issues.

I wonder if the Councillors are too anxious canvassing and securing their seats to fiddle around with mundane stuff like getting business' going! They were quick enough to step in and take over the Harbour. Wonder if there is an agenda??

I have to admit that I never knew the names of any butterflies. Recently I am watching Biodiversity programmes and now spot butterflies in the last few days.
This is a good site to get the names of our Irish varieties,
