Dáil passes first stage of bill to abolish town councils

TDS voted today in favour of a bill to abolish town councils. The Local Government Bill merges town councils into county councils. This means that Wexford Borough Council, and the various town councils throughout the county, will soon be no more. Consider this: the first Charter of Wexford Town on record is that granted in 1317 by Aymer de Valence. Much water has passed under the bridge since then. And when our Charter is ungranted the water will continue to flow under the bridge. Into the wild unchartered waters beyond.
