I owe this one to Newt at the Portadown News. The Irish Independent in its editorial on Thursday said:

“Earthquakes and floods are rare indeed in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown. Malfunctioning traffic lights are about the nearest that favoured location ever comes to a disaster.”

But in less that 24 hours flooding in the area was severe enough to prompt calls for the setting up of a new strategic government agency.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
