Mayor of Castlebar Town Council Michael Kilcoyne laid down a challenge to Fine Gael Leader Enda Kenny to introduce a private member’s bill to enact legislation to regulate head shops in the country. Mayor Kilcoyne led a protest organised by town councillors in Castlebar which protested outside the two head shops in the town last Wednesday. When it was put to him that the protest was outside two premises which were acting inside the law as it stands he said: “I accept they are not breaking any law and we need to highlight the lack of any regulation. We have two government TDs in this constituency and we also have the leader of the opposition who can put down a private member’s bill to force a vote in the Dáil.”
There’s probably enough of talk of doom and gloom around without me adding to it here. But sure at this stage we wouldn’t know how to cope if we heard a bit of good news anyway, would we? With that in mind I thought I’d share with you something that has been troubling me over the festive period.
This Sunday Westmeath have their first outing in what will undoubtedly be a testing league campaign, when they welcome Galway to Cusack Park.
Westmeath face a difficult challenge this weekend as they travel north to take on reigning league champions Derry in Ballinascreen at 2.30pm on Sunday. Having lost the opening round against Galway, an away win would be a welcome tonic to O’Flatharta’s men. Derry had two points to spare over Mayo in their first round clash and will not want to go down in their first home game of the season.
Badly in need of points if they are to have any hope of maintaining their division one status, Westmeath can expect nothing easy when they head west this Sunday to take on Mayo in round three of the Allianz National Football League.
