Re: Somewhere to Chat.

I can't find a St.Michael's Hospital topic so will post here. On Tuesday evening my Doctor asked me to go to A & E immediately, she was faxing them a letter. I didn't know A & E is open 8.00. a.m. to 8.00.p.m. Got there at about 7.00.p.m. about 8 people waiting an others in inner rooms, I was seen, ...

Re: St. Patrick's, Church of Ireland, Dalkey

Those who now live in Dalkey would be horrified at your post Rocker - their very affluent 'town' as they like to style it never had cottages or corpo houses. I think it would be difficult to find many natives Dalkey people these days.

Re: Moan of the Month

I agree all lives matter and colour or creed should not be the issue. Since 1964 I have been visiting the US - some things have improved over the years but the underlying racism is very much alive. This is not just against African Americans, but a lot of nationalities. I found racism among some Iris...

The Government had to put something in place quickly. They did this, now they will sort out the messers - a lad in the midlands was arrested yesterday over false payment claims. I think he will be in court to-day. This payment won't last long. For those who needed it, I think the Government did a go...

Yesterday I was woken by the sound of machinery and traffic, instead of the beautiful sounds of birds to which I became accustomed during the past couple of months. Definitely lots more cars on the road, I live beside a dualcarriagway.

The Dart is a great service which I used for many years. In recent times it has appeared to be dirty, seats, aisles, litter etc. The state of the dart is created mainly, by Irish people! When free papers were given out at stations most passengers left this on the train when they had finished with it...

Folks, have just listened to Adam Whiston's widow Mona on Drive Time approximately 17.30 talking about Adam's death. Poor Mona is away and could not get home for the funeral. It appears his illness and death was very fast.

Re: Water and other political issues.

St. Columcilles has a very wide catchment area, there is a big distance between it and any other along the east coast to the south. Smaller hospitals like it can be used as specialist places for specified ailments and thus leave the larger ones for more serious procedures.

Re: Dun laoghaire Historical Society

Brendan McGovern, I think the current Chair, is talking about this History in the Making. I feel sure Bren will record as much as he can. Bren is the son of Michael who was instrumental in setting up the Society many years ago. Michael was reared in Patrick Street, Dun Laoghaire.
