The Small Impact Writers' had a wee get together on Thursday 15th December in the New Grange Hotel Navan.
While they sat at table waiting for their meal to be served one of the ladies present asked "what do you think our next project should be?" One of the men present answered " I think we should write something about the Septic Tank charges ".
Oh that's a great idea and what word rhymes with tank ", she replied. There was an instantaneous outburst of uncontrolable laughter from the group.  I bit my lip and suggested, Yank, someone else said crank and Pat was heard to say bank, this set the tone for the evening and the stories began to flow and a great night was enjoyed by all.

Who said the crack was 90 in the Isle of Man, hear this the crack was 99.9 in the New Grange.  Up ye boy ye.
