The Republic of Cork
What is it with the Examiner? Granted it's about my fifth choice for paper news, but I end up reading it when the breakfast joint has nothing else left around. I know they used to be the Cork Examiner but dammit nowadays they're worse than NewsTalk for forgetting the rest of the country.
I was mulling this over in my head just now and I decided to see if I was being over-sensitive. So I went to their site and checked the section marked:
Irish Examiner | Irish News | News from Ireland
And there's a story headlined:
City residents to be allowed to reapply for parking permits
And the body then reads:
The city confirmed yesterday that from this week, people living in apartments who had permits before March 2004, but who were refused renewals after the introduction of the policy that month, will be able to reapply for the permits.
Case closed. I suppose we should be supportive of a paper that chooses to prioritise a city other than Dublinium.
