I left home 10 weeks ago. I’m 27 years of age. I worked hard at home and got no where. Every week I saw more news that simply depressed me more about my home county.
I tried my best in Donegal. I tried harder than most. Eventually I got bored of the political situation, the job and work opportunity situation, the mentality of everyone at home (in Donegal).
I stood back and watched as a great town (Letterkenny) fall apart. I left a few months ago and have found a certain freedom here in Australia.
Never mind Ireland, let’s just concentrate on Donegal… The political system there is completely WRONG! The representatives we elected seem only bothered about stating what ‘should be said’, what about what NEEDS to be said??
What about the people that live miles away from the nearest bus service? What about the people that won’t receive digital service from RTE in a year or 2??
I know what I mention above seems trivial… But nobody seems to consider that Donegal people seem to speak in silent tongues! How embarrassing! How embarrassing that the people on Donegal are left out?
Let no man say they are not…. Donegal IS BY FAR… THE FORGOTTEN COUNTY! Living away from home has given me great perspective. Poor Donegal, oh poor Donegal! Time to stand up, and rise up! Please do or else the future is gone, if not already!
This may seem like a rant, but I’m sure a few will mind the famine… Sorry folks but history is repeating from where us lads are standing!
