    Nice to see Mammy's son knowing how to catch the headlines by requesting the current FG mayor to resign over this, (spoofer)

    But yeah, FG are screwed in these areas. Even Willie Penrose might get chopped over Mullingar Barracks.
    Yeah, History will tell us though that the Brigade was taken away under a Fine Gael government. just like the A and E down the road was closed under a Fine Gael government.

    Sean McEoin took over the barracks. Blacksmith of Ballinalee.
    That's the official story. Real story is that a McEoin went on the piss and when he came back to the barracks dragged Hughes from his cell and shot him. Hughes was due to be shot by firing squad later but McEoin got his spake in early.
