Dear Sir or Madam,

Note: If you type “Thurles” into your internet browser, most likely you will find Thurles.Info top of page 1. [And why not since it has been visited almost 2.5 million times since its conception. Yes, no political Facebook accounts featuring on page 1]. So, it is here we offer you the opportunity to further your political careers and causes, while further introducing yourself to your adoring public, while promising to publish your correspondence in full.

However, with regards to our internet ranking, let us set our personal satisfaction aside, and point out that we truly are more interested in drawing your attention to the feature, which is being highlighted above us at the top of Google’s page 1, entitled Top things to do in Thurles. (Click HERE or view our clarifying picture hereunder).

This is the level of pollution this evening, just 50 metres from Thurles Town Park and 60 metres from Liberty Square.

Top things to do in Thurles
Of the four sites highlighted, you will note that two of the visitor sites recommendation are within the Town of Thurles, while Holycross Abbey is 7.0 km (4.3496mls) outside and Killahara Castle; not a visitor centre, is 10.4 km (6.46226mls), outside the town.

But look on the bright side, we have two visitor site recommendation within our town.
(1) Thurles Cathedral: Currently free to enter, Thurles Cathedral comes highly recommend as a place to visit, by all Tourists entering the town.
(2) Thurles Town Park: Was Thurles town park built as a tourist attraction? In my mind it’s doubtful, but let us for a brief moment fantasize.
With a star rating of just one, “the bookworm hotel”, (latter badly in need of a spell checker) refers to our leading Thurles Town Park attraction as:- “Terrible. I think this place really needs to crack down on the gangs at night. Two people were actacked (attacked) while walking at night. Teens smoke here after school clear as day with no chance of being caught. This a hotspot for bad things . As a park it is frankly too small and needs more stuff to go on as it can be packed after school and kids need things to do . More playground sites are needed and rules more inforced (enforced)” .

Questions:
(A) Who would build a town park for tourists beside the most polluted river area in Co. Tipperary; highlighting it as a tourist attraction? [See picture above today 50 metres from the park, where children today were brought to play.]
(B) What is the substance currently and consistently being poured into our river Suir? Who is investigating and when can a prosecution be taken through the court system?
(C) Having read most of the glossy political brochures which were pushed through my letterbox, as part of your begging / canvassing campaign, I am shocked to note that tourism remains totally absent from all your brochures and therefore your future aspirations. Once again, footfall on Liberty Square, to you is not, after all, a real priority.

It is the opinion of most people to whom I have spoken in recent days, that absolutely nothing has been achieved by those who were elected 5 years ago. The suggestion is now that perhaps we should indicate our choice in favour of new candidates, giving them a chance to undertake badly needed change, which you as elected representatives have failed dismally to implement.

Your comments please.

Yours faithfully,
George Willoughby

PS: All correspondence will be verified with candidates before being published.
