The Clones dudes have got Jimmy Deenihan to say that the canal to Clones is a great idea.
Is it kind to keep these chaps hanging on in this way? I blame the department. I begin to suspect that its northsouthery section fears that it will never gain fame and fortune from Tha Boord o Ulster-Scotch (whatever about its companion, Foras na Gaeilge) and is reluctant to kill off its chance of getting its photo in the papers at the ceremonial turning of a sod. Brendan Howlin might usefully direct his department‘s attention to the matter.
