greencastle harbour

Greencastle is about 4km from Moville.  Greencastle takes its name from the castle, built in 1305 by Richard de Burgo, the Earl of Ulster, to guard the entrance to Lough Foyle. The Greencastle Marina is situated in the heart of the village, providing secure and safe berthing at the mouth of Lough Foyle, Co. Donegal.   The Greencastle Marina is a preferred first port of call for yachts coming from Scotland or Northern Ireland.

gardai issues being reported on

The issues regarding the Gardaí are very concerning it said on the news.   The Garda Siochana had over-estimated the number of breath tests carried out each year by almost a million.  Another mistake also means around €150,000 road traffic offences may need to be wiped because of a clerical error by the gardaí and the latest scandal involves almost 15,000 wrongful road traffic convictions.
It's incredible that the Gardai can be so inept, no wonder their moral is down.

the all-out indefinte strike begins today

Bus Éireann, the state-owned transport company is facing financial difficulty, with losses last year reaching almost €10 million. It says changes to employees’ contracts are needed in order to keep the company viable.
These include job losses, changes to bus routes, cuts in overtime and a range of other measures.  The unions have strongly resisted these changes, and state that savings can be made elsewhere. Talks collapsed 10 days ago between both sides at the Workplace Relations Commission. 
However, in the absence of management presenting a sustainable or equitable plan for the future of the company, which is agreed with workers, it has left our members with no option but to commence strike action.
