LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
INTERFERENCE GONE, THANKS!
I'm glad to say that since I first wrote to you about the problem of the "religious station" that seemed to dominate the airways up here in Donnybrook, has disappeared. I 'm also glad to see that I wasn't the only person affected. Many thanks for helping to bring the problem to light and I think solving it.
Keep up the good work.
BENEFITS ON AN AFFLUENT SOCIETY
For many years a resident of Shamrock Lawn, it has been
enlightening to view the effects of increasing economic
prosperity on both the social and environmental aspects of the
area. The odd sprinkling of crisp packets that once littered the
estate has now turned into a multicoloured deluge of
confectionery and "fast food" wrappings. Obviously this
is a clear indication that today's parents feed their offspring
much better than previous generations, despite what nutritionists
and dentists would have us believe. Where once one could see a
few empty soft drink plastic bottles and cans thrown randomly
around, heaps of beer and cider cans began to appear.
In even more recent times, these eye-catching landmarks have been added to by the inclusion of empty spirit bottles, thus greatly increasing the aesthetic aura of the estate (especially when they are broken). This is definite evidence of a more tolerant and caring parentage, whose increased spending power enables them to indulge their children.
Sadly, there are still many of the old fashioned type parents who object to their teenagers coming home intoxicated in the early hours of the morning.
Yesteryear the Lawn had just a few scrawny mutts wandering around the estate, whereas now we can boast of having a fair sized pack of pedigree dogs, paying regular calls to residents gardens. Their proud owners must be given credit for unselfishly providing the means of organically fertilising both private and public areas.
It is heartening to see that so many residents of the area choose to ignore frivolous laws making it an offence to litter, let dogs roam uncontrolled, sell alcohol to the under-aged, and not to keep the footpath adjacent to ones home free of litter. Such a progressive attitude is sure to bring house prices down to a more reasonable level and produce motivated, young adults ready to take their place in an environmentally aware society.
