Yeah, yuh seeing right. Nothing wrong with your eyes, so don’t worry. It is de Bellcrier. Back after a long time, just like despondency, slow economy, long lines fuh passports, full flights out, and battles with de vendors to keep dem off de pave. These things people forget about or didn’t know of, especially dem young ones. But ole people does seh, “de world round” and that “things does go round and round”. One thing that look like it going round and round is de parking meter story. De first thing that come to de Bellcrier mind regarding that is that there is never a dull moment in GT! Even de lights pun de Big Market adding to de lack of dullness!With Hammie get chased by Pat who apparently now looking to avoid DunKan, de action continues. People who like car chases in movies seh is not de chases alone that is exciting, but de skillful and exaggerated heart-pumping parkings. Dem recommend de plenty ‘Fast and de Furious’ movies to prove de point. That aside, it look like there is plenty ‘fast and furiousness’ happening over at de Hall of the City. Some seh that Pat and de King trying fuh put in de parking meters fast after jet speeding to Cancun country while DunKan and others remain furious!While de engines were roaring overhead to seal de deal fast, up comes Uncle Bull, who got oversight responsibilities fuh de Towns, and effortlessly and nonchalantly (big words) park de whole issue; or try to! It put pun hold; briefly! According to people there, that turn things around; again, briefly! Pat and de King apparently get furious and hit back. Dem park Uncle Bull parking intervention. September gon tell! DunKan still furious and he not parking that! Ole people does also seh that “de race is not fuh de swift”, but it look like Pat and King gat de advantage with Uncle Bull intervention behind followed by DunKan furiousness! One thing is fuh sure; more action in GT in store! De Bellcrier adrenaline rushing fast while parkers furiousness growing! Ting-a-ling-a-ling!
The people of Tory Island have been inconvenienced this week after the Queen of Aran was temporarily taken out of service.The much-disputed ferry that began running in Spring 2018 has been docked at Magheroarty since Wednesday after a technical issue.It is believed that a rope from a lobster trap got caught in the ferry propellor this week and was later brought to the attention of the MSO Marine Survey Office. The ferry was soon repaired on Wednesday and is now due to undergo a routine MSO inspection. A temporary replacement boat, the Elsie Jayne, was brought in to accommodate passengers. The boat holds 12 passengers, but locals say this is not enough at the height of the summer season.“The Queen of Aran being out of action is impacting hugely on the businesses on the island. The boat was and is not suitable for Tory, which is why the people were protesting,” said one Tory resident.“People can’t get anything in unless they travel with it. If you want anything delivered you have to go to the mainland and bring it with you.”It is expected that the survey of the Queen of Aran will be completed soon, and it will return to regular operation. The fast ferry has not been affected and is running twice-daily as normal.
