#2646

You’ve nothing to prove to us.


#2647

Obviously not to same extent but there are three families destroyed.

Nobody is winning here.


#2648

The brits love being outraged, love it. We are more of a sweep sweep thady o toole mob.


#2649

#2650

Didn’t one of the perpetrators make up a story to cover his tracks? At 13 years of age that is quite chilling.


#2651

Didnt the families go along with it?


#2652

And aren’t you related to that family? Purple-Monkey-Dishwasher


#2653

Not sure mate.


#2654

Isn’t this the second incident in Macroom in a few weeks?


#2655

Yes.


#2656

You’d want your head examined to live in Macroom.


#2657

More info.

Is Macroom a rough spot @gilgamboa @backinatracksuit? I wouldn’t have thought so. But I’ve only been there once or twice.


#2658

It would certainly seem that way.


#2659

Is this fued related?


#2660

Not at all Id say


#2661

The estates on the road in from the city would be dog rough

Macroom could be any big small town in Ireland in this instance. The upshot of our Celtic Tiger style problem solving has left a legacy of ghost estates in every one-horse town that have in themselelves become anti-social behaviour hubs. Coupled with ‘Regeneration’, where we farmed out those beyond the system to dilute their influence, but actually facilitated them in developing their skillset with impunity, small towns can’t cope with these hoodlums, in a law and order sense.

Back in the day you had a few winos, a few wild young fellas and the annual tinker migration. Today you have the disenfranchised welfare-dependant local population, the hoodlums, the eastern Europeans and the tinkers all contributing to a heady mix of criminal enterprise. Throw in a few drugs and a lack of Garda resources and you have a Macroom. An escalating situation that is close to getting out of hand. A situation all too familiar to the inhabitants of Macroom. The dogs on the street, if you will.

Macroom could be Newcasltle West, Killorglin, Tullamore, Youghal, Enniscorthy, Thurlas or any place like them.

And when the milk turns sour, the taxpayer will have to drink it.


#2663

And what’s the story with this shooting?


#2664

Few Ballysteen big time charlies lost the run of themselves after the football and went rogue on the sneachta. You know yourself.


#2665

He was killed in the rural hinterland to the south west of the town, on the back roads to Cill na Martra. Apparently the victim was dumping rubbish in the ditches at night and he was finally caught in the act by a more than disgruntled farmer.
