I am very positive about the Wild Atlantic Way initiative and try to promote local areas through my own social media when the opportunity arises. I am, however,confused by a number of factors. Why does it only begin in Kinsale and not further eastwards-even counties Waterford and Wexford? Why, as evidenced by the sign on the eastern approach to Clonakilty from Ring, is the County Council trying to suggest that
Sir, I come from a town called Kinsale, sixteen miles from Cork Airport where we depend on Cork Airport for tourism. The loss of 100 jobs at Cork Airport and another 4000 jobs SIPTU and IMPACT are well aware of British Airways history of downgrading routes.

Dear Editor, When you kill the people’s spirit in any country, the country dies a premature death. Today we have 4,000 local authority houses lying empty while the number of families on the waiting lists and those falling into homelessness grows.
