Its more like a nightclub than a foot bridge, in saying that, its not a bad idea.It would reduce crime in the area, get rid of scumbags, all thoes "Hell Bent" on trouble on your peaceful night out, could take the exit of choice, left or right.no air con required. easy to "pull" because no one could afford to stand around single or you would die of hypathermia... ok just an idea ! nice photo. As for quote;1899 square miles, 130,000 people, ONE judge. Yup, one judge to cover Co. Donegal and North County Leitrim. Thats great news !! If we had just one garda for to patrol the 1899 square miles.. we could speed as much as we like, drink in de pubs till morning, have our own vigil anti groups, and a kangaroo court every Sunday just for entertainment. Excellent blog by the way.
