Unbelieveable! Why not buy Southfork?

What with house hunting, and not sleeping right I am a touch crankified this morning. And then I read this...

"AN accommodation centre on Limerick city's suburbs for seven Traveller families remains idle eight months after it was completed at a cost of €2m.

A legal dispute is continuing between Limerick County Council and the families about the site at Kilmurry View in Castletroy.

The seven families - O'Reillys, McCarthys and Ryans - who live beside the new accommodation centre have refused to move into the new facility.

The dispute centres around the families' claims that the local authority has not provided them with anywhere to keep their horses.

Both parties involved are now receiving legal advice on how to resolve the issue.

A Limerick County Council spokesperson said they could not comment as it was "a legal issue".

Junior Health Minister Tim O'Malley said he would not listen to "any more nonsense about local authorities being obliged to provide special transient facilities for these obviously well-to-do Travellers".

He described their attitude as "grasping and inconsiderate".

I am boggled, actually I'm too tired to be boggled, I'm seething instead. All the folk that emailed the other day worried about getting onto the property ladder and worried about mortgage hikes....and this shower are turning down a 2 million Euro centre because the government didn't provide stables!
Ridiculous.

Sigh, that's not waht I was saying, but for god's sake, refusing 2 million euro accomadation becasue of horses. Will the government give me a home for my cats?

Couldn't they keep the horse in the bathroom - it might just need a bit of house training! Maybe the council could provide an indoor horse sized loo - shouldn't cost more than a hundred grand or so!

Travellers? are they like gypsies? don't you just run the like of 'em out of town by banging pots together??

They're exactly like gypsies, and you could try run them out but as you were running you'd suddenly notice you hadn't a stitch of clothing on you and your pots were missing. Which they would then sell back to you at 'a fair price sir/ma'am.'

Welcome home missy, I'll be right over when I finish typing this sodding document up.

I live in a council house, though I doubt I would be provided with the space to keep a horse no matter how nicely I asked.

You're obviously going about it the wrong way. Threaten to sue, that should have them hopping in dismay. Also steal your local councilman's six bar gate.

Did you see the movie Pavee Lackeen? About the traveller girl. I saw it because I was curious to learn a little bit more about travellers, and I sometimes get annoyed with people who just slag off gypsies or travellers without really knowing what they talk about. Such as I have done myself. Where I grew up I was taught to detest and mistrust gypsies, but as I got older I realized I didn't have any personal experience of them, so why detest something you know nothing about? So I've tried to find out about things over the years - travellers being one example. But I must say that this movie in particular did nothing to raise the profile of travellers, nor to give anybody the impression that they've just been "misunderstood" over the years. Although it got raving reviews, I found it very very depressing, to the point of wanting to slice my wrists afterwards. That, or get drunk. I of course chose the latter - the eternal solution to all problems.
Anyway, I lost track of my thoughts here... I just wanted to make a point that I'm sure a lot of travellers are good people - like anybody else, nothing is black&white - but yes I understand your rage over this FMC, this is totally out of order!! But where lies the big Fault? Who is to blame for it?

I don't know Eva.
I'm from the country and when I was growing up my gamma treated a particular set of travellers with the utmost respect, and they her. They came, she made them tea and sambos and they brought the tray back and blessed her.
But I also saw my own father demand they return a six bar gate they had robbed two hours previously and my neighbour a donkey they had taken from a field (which they swore blind they had no idea how he had wandered into camp and tied himself up). So I guess good and bad, yeah?
But to turn down a gift horse of two million euro? Yeah, that gets on my goat.

The DIY motorized laces demonstrated in the above video aren't quite as elegant as Marty McFly's Power Laces, but the side effects--razor burn, ingrown hairs and itching--can be downright uncomfortable.
