These are people, human beings with some connection to Rathkeale. Rathkeale is to them what the beach is to English people in the summertime,” Cllr Sheahan told council members at this month’s Adare-Rathkeale area meeting.The Askeaton man went on to say that many local businesses would not survive without the revenue brought into the town each year by the huge numbers of Travellers from England that visit the town for Christmas.“I feel there is only one signal that goes up the flagpole before they arrive. People get up in arms against them.“It is not an invasion and they are not all hostile. Some are more a nuisance than hostile. Two vehicles blocking up the road when they stop to greet one another annoys us all, but that is not a crime, it’s an offence.“There is a significant economic benefit to the town. This is their Galway Races,” he declared.“There’s no horses though,” one councillor replied.Mayor Stephen Keary took issue with Cllr Sheahan’s comments about the revenue brought into the town every year by members of the Traveller Community. He said that one local employer with a staff of 50 people and paying €45,000 a year in commercial rates, had an illegal business set up outside its premises selling furniture last Christmas.“People from Rathkeale and the hinterland won’t even come into the shops in the town over Christmas and do their shopping elsewhere,” Cllr Keary claimed.Cllr Sheahan accused the Mayor of “having a bee in his bonnet about the Traveller community”.“Be very careful,” Cllr Keary warned before insisting Cllr Sheahan withdraw his remark.“Withdraw your foot,” Cllr Sheahan replied.The New Superintendent of Newcastle West Garda Division, Eamon O’Neill, told councillors that supplementary resources from the divisional unit would be available in Rathkeale at “critical times” during the Christmas Alan [email protected] Linkedin WhatsApp Missing you this Christmas Decision to enter Phase 4 of reopening Ireland deferred to August 10 Advertisement Fianna Fáil TD Niall Collins appointed as Minister of State Top Fianna Fáil councillor will reject Green coalition deallast_img read more

At this point, Microsoft may not continue to add games to its backwards compatibility In the 1980s, the question was “Where’s the beef?” In 2020 it’s, “Where’s the games?”While the market for gaming is juicier than ever, console launches can be a bit thin when it comes to launch titles. Early reveals for games for this upcoming generation have been promising, though, and gamer looking towards the next generation of sports games will have plenty to look forward to on the next iteration of the Xbox line of consoles.  MORE: Everything you need to know about the Xbox Series XWith the Xbox Series X set to hit the market at some point in Quarter 4 of 2020, so far, the console race is neck and neck with both Sony and Microsoft waiting for the other to blink over release date and retail price. Reports indicate that the PS5 could be upwards of around $550, with no official price set in stone just yet.As far as the games go, that’s all user preference. While the specs between both consoles have points in either direction, the actual landscape of the games is so far, incomplete. But we have a least a more full picture of what to expect once Santa shimmies down the chimneys this holiday season, with the Xbox game showcase taking place in July.Here’s what we know about the upcoming games for the Xbox Series X.Xbox Series X gamesA majority of the announced games from the Xbox Series X gaming showcase fall into one of three categories: Launch day, holiday or TBA. The list of confirmed games for the upcoming console is lengthy, but release dates are few and far between.last_img read more
