These are the best of times and the worst of times, a more learned scribe than Grassroots once opined.
Never one to shy away from a controversy or pushing for what he believed was right, Frank Durcan threw his hat back in the local political ring last week, putting himself forward for both Castlebar Town Council and Mayo County Council elections. Durcan, who stepped away from politics five years ago, is eager to get back into the to and fro of the political game and believes that politics in the county needs a serious shake up. “The country is going down the tubes, the system has been ripped off by our politicians and our bankers. In Mayo county council there are no two parties, there has been no opposition for the past five years. It's a cosy cartel, while they drew close on €1 million a year in expenses between them, which are legally entitled to them. But it’s immoral for the amount of work they do, unless you get honesty back into politics in this country it's going to only get worse and worse.”
It’s a long way from Kiltoom to Neverland, but local auctioneer Martin Nolan has been charged with overseeing one of the biggest auctions of pop memorabilia in history.
They came from far and near to the Victoria Hotel last Friday where O’Donnellan & Joyce held its first spring auction after the winter recess. In a sense it was like the good old times of packed auction rooms, the only difference being that the prices achieved were somewhat lower than of old. However the owners of all three properties had set the advised minimum values very realistically which goes to prove that if the price is right the property will sell. In these times of doom and gloom there was a real air of euphoria in the room, and the final hammer came down on two of the three properties that were sold at the auction to applause from the packed room.
Superior five-bed, two- storey house on large site in an exceptional area, within walking distance of Roscommon town and all its amenities.
Residents in an estate in Castlebar are living in a constant state of fear and terror due to the behaviour of Traveller families residing there. But no one knows who is housing the trouble makers. The HSE has denied it is housing them and the chair of Mayo County Council’s housing SPC said the council wouldn’t house four or five Traveller families in one private estate, so the finger points at absentee landlords and developers who are otherwise finding it difficult to rent houses.
Burren View is located just off the Knocknacarra Road, which is flanked by the Upper Salthill Road and the Kingston Road.
You could be excused for thinking that the recession was over last Thursday; such was the crowd at the auction of two Claddagh properties in The Victoria Hotel.
The shock news that sitting MEP Seán Ó Neachtain will not now be contesting the European Parliamentary Elections in June due to ill health has left Fianna Fáil in a tight corner and down a candidate with only just over six weeks to go to the election. The burning question is to who will they get to replace the former Galway school teacher on the ticket alongside the recently nominated Pascal Mooney.
There was tremendous bidding at the O’Donnellan & Joyce auction of No 7 New Avenue Wood, Rahoon. The property is an attractive three bedroom semidetached house situated in a wonderful location of New Avenue Wood. In terms of convenience, the agent outlines that this property has it all as it is within easy access of Galway city centre and Salthill. In addition No 7 New Avenue Wood has the advantage of being only a stone’s throw from NUIG and UHG.
