Moyle Council District - What A Carry On ...

Is it the weather? We've just had a Carry On Up Torr 2 AND a right carry on in the Council chamber. The Kingdom of Moyle is such a beautiful place; visitors often get a wonderful welcome but these shenanigans are not just a blot on the landscape - they're a disgrace.

And, as if on cue, the rain has begun pouring down :L

Later the same day

Paudie McShane, the controversial new chairman of Moyle Council, was to have declared the new changing facilities at Dundarave in Bushmills open this evening. However, an earlier exchange of 'pleasantries' concerning this year's Orange Order demonstration staged by Ballycastle District in Ballycastle led to a protest gathering at the facilities. The protesters refused to let the chairman through to the building so he called the function off and departed. The services of the PSNI riot control unit parked out of sight on the other side of town were not needed.
