Matthew 25:40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Grammer, I have to agree with you on this, they should sort out their own
back yard before interfering in anyone else's.
It is bad that the young man is in prison for such a long time but he and his
sisters knew what they were getting into when they went to Egypt. Irish
law does not apply outside our jurisdiction but taxpayers pay a lot to
sort out the problems of such young men and women.

We are working our way through the DLRCoCo Summer Heritage programme.

Today at 2p.m saw us standing outside the Martello Tower on Killiney Hill. How many times have I driven past that doorway and wondered what it was like inside.

here is a photo and details
http://www.photopol.com/martello/no7.html

The gate was opened and the beautiful sea vista was there before us...wow. The guide then started the tour. I have to say she was the most informative guide who took her time with the various age group of the assembled masses.First there was the tour of the outside , the history of martello Towers in the area, the renovation and restoration of the Tower etc. The detail and work of the restoration! Then inside at the basement they have a video show and some remarkable paintings and pictures of the 1800's. Up and up we went each room more remarkable than the one below. till we got on the roof....spectacular. Get there to visit if you can.

A remarkable achievement by Mr Niall O'Donoghue.

Hi Toss.I wonder if there is more income from a swimming pool than the provision of housing?......less responsibility?

I'm having mixed feelings about the Cherrywood development. We went to a public meeting last year when the new crowd took over the project and they were all bells and whistles and "wait till you see the great public spaces" etc but, what will the houses and flats look like ??
Here is an article about one portion of the site
http://www.irishtimes.com/business/comm ... -1.2532273

I'm dreading the disruption getting on to the M50 while the work on building the roads goes on and then the disruption with the building of the houses. There will be no views from Wyattville when the units are built and coming from the M50 the units will take away the views of the sea.

Rocker you cant stop progress -It may not be to our liking but-
Houses and apts are the future -back and front gardens are consigned to history-----
The Cherrywood juction is a nightmare anyway -If you listen to the evening news) so having extra trucks going backwards and forwards on the M 50 wont make much difference-I'd say they will only use it off peak.
I for one look forward to thousands of apts and parks being built there ( :roll: :roll: )as long as there are rules and regulations in place.
