In tribute to the finest newspaper in the county I will update readers of Clare related happenings in this thread.

Possibility of Celeb Spots as Shower of Cunts head for West Clare…

THE MANAGEMENT of the exclusive Doonbeg golf club in west Clare has written to its members requesting them to “stay away” from the golf club on August 21st.

The request is understood to be connected with the upcoming wedding celebrations of Andrea Corr at the luxurious hotel and spa.

The letter to members coincides with local rumours that Bono or U2 will perform at the lavish wedding reception on the third Friday in August.

Achieving worldwide fame as a lead singer with The Corrs, Corr is due to marry Brett Desmond, son of billionaire Dermot Desmond.

Many of the golf club’s members have paid a joining fee of €55,861, but that will not gain them admittance on the date.

In the letter, the golf club has requested that members stay away from the golf club on the day due to security reasons as there was a private function going on. The letter does not give any further details.

Corr and Bono have been good friends for a number of years. The band has a free night in its tour schedule on August 21st.

Fuck, DeBeers Gone

Awful news. Used to be the best jobs in the county, it’ll be hard for some of these lads to get jobs

Industrial diamonds manufacturer Element Six is to make three-quarters of its workforce in Shannon, Co Clare redundant.

It has decided to close its production and distribution units by the end of the year and transfer the work to other Element Six sites. The move will lead to the loss of 370 jobs.

Just 80 employees will remain in Shannon in research and development, customer services and support functions.

Staff were briefed on the decision at 10am.

Element Six - formerly De Beers Industrial Diamonds - reduced its workforce of 600 by 150 people last year through a voluntary redundancy programme.

The company was established in the 1960s as De Beers and is co-owned by De Beers and Belgian company Umicore.

It manufactures industrial diamonds and super-hard materials used in the manufacture of tools for drilling, sawing, cutting, grinding and polishing of different materials.

It has manufacturing plants in South Africa, Sweden, Germany and Israel.

thats bad, along with the airport, shannon was practically built around that place.

Kept Clarecastle in hurlers for years. The good old days are gone in Shannon. Limerick and Clare men have to turn to the internet for their banter these days.
