Kildare should break link to Lisburn?

That’s the view of one member of “Athy Town Council on Wednesday, in response to recent remarks by a Lisburn Councillor. Lisburn Democratic Unionist Party member Paul Grivan had reportedly spoken dismissively of the leaders of the 1916 Rising”. Though the Leinster Leader might like to note that Lisburn is now a city; no longer a town.
