There are times when Town Councils and residents’ groups must throw their hands up in the air and declare: “why bother?”
Why go to the effort of trying to improve a locality, of providing an amenity that will unquestionably augment an area, when the local hoodlums will, sooner rather than later, undo their good works?
Take Ballylynch in Carrick-on-Suir for example, a community which has been disserviced and largely ignored for years by the world beyond Town Hall.
