X-Rated film from the Park

North Wexford councillors are pushing for the installation of an increased number of CCTV cameras in various locations to help tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.

With a major upgrade of the Gorey Town Park due to begin later this year Cllr. Anthony Donohoe told a meeting of the Municipal District Council that adequate CCTV should be installed in the park to help ensure that problems were controlled in the future.

But Cllr. Robbie Ireton commented that they cameras could capture some very interesting activities in the park. ‘You will get plenty of activity suitable for porn movies’, he commented.



Councillors to ‘talk’ to Tom

A bid by Sinn Fein councillor Fionntan O’Suilleabhain to secure a portion of land near Gorey Showgrounds for the Talk To Tom organisation did not win the backing of his colleagues at the May meeting of the Gorey Municipal District Council.

The voluntary group received had to cease using their premises on Fort Road in the town and O’Suilleabhain had asked the Council to agree to donate a portion of land to Talk To Tom.

However, his effort was rejected out of hand by his colleagues who accused him of being political in bringing the motion.

Instead the members decided to invite the Talk To Tom Group to meet the Council to discuss all their concerns in the near future.


Pupils get  Council education

School children in the North Wexford area have been getting a first-hand look at what the local Council does in the community.

A programme of school visits has been developed by the Gorey Council in recent years and this year fifth and sixth class pupils from  Camolin and Coolgreany visiting the Council Chamber this year where the Chairman, Pip Breen, and council officials gave them a detailed outline of exactly what the Council does in terms of services provided for the community.


Camolin gets its Bus Shelters

After a battle of several years Bus Stop Shelters have finally been installed in the village of Camolin and various footpath upgrades to cater for the stops have also been carried out.

Cllr.  Anthony Donohoe had made the provision of the shelters a pet project of his since joining the Council three years ago.

And in more good news for Camolin village extensive repairs are also being carried out on both sides of the N11 through the village.
