Last night I lay awake trembling with fear.
I was being repossessed in a matter of three weeks.
Then realisation dawned- I was now almost homeless.
Why me I thought? Then I remembered.

In 1980, we were told we were living beyond our means by a
man dressed in a Charvet shirt who too lived,
beyond his means.
A man who stooped so low as to take £250,000 from a
friends life support fund.
What came after this?
a finance minister who then became leader, a man who
stated, " he never held a bank account while he was minister "
But all along he was signing cheques for the man in the
Charvet shirt.

The minister was warned that, " his reckless policies would de-
vour the Celtic Tiger "
He told them to, " go and commit suicide ".
He stated, " his only regret was that he had not built the Bertie Bowl ".

With leaders like this, no wonder the homeless figures rise,
people made homeless by the greedy bankers, mystery bond holders,
corrupt leaders with lavish pensions funded by the taxpayers.
People cry out for justice!
The vulnerable are hit, the sick, the blind.
Our children cry out!
No bail out for them, no Galway tent, no whip around.
Made homeless by THE BOOM TIME RATS.

Congratulations to the Navan and District Historical Society, on the launch of their new website Navan

The launch took place in Navan Library on Thursday 16th February. The launch was conducted by the Mayor of Navan CLLR Anton McCabe.

The society was founded in 2007 and their main aim is to foster an interest in the local history of the area. They published their first journal  ( Navan it's People and it's Past,  VOLUME1 ) just before Christmas and are delighted to say that it completely sold out within a few weeks. They are running a limited reprint of the journal and hope to have copies in the shops by the end of March.

As part of the Shamrock Festival Vincent Mulvany will lead an historical walking tour of Navan starting at 10am from the CYWS Hall Fairgreen on St Patrick's Day. Vincent will also have his unique series of photographs of the Old St. Pats/ St. Finian's Study Hall on display in the CYWS Hall.
