Slane Robberies Theft and Antisocial Behaviour

The Hill of Slane is one of the most beautiful and scenic parts of Ireland, steeped in ancient history and folklore. Visiting this remarkable location should be a magical experience, but instead those who arrive are welcomed by the sign, “BEWARE -THIEVES AT WORK”.

What a terrible advertisement for our country and for those hoping to enjoy some of our culture. Slane robberies and theft in Slane are two of the most serious issues facing the region's tourism industry today, emblematic of wider problems certainly but also individually troublesome.

These thefts and antisocial behaviour in Slane were brought to the attention of Peter Whelan of Aontú when two tourists visiting from abroad had their cars broken into and their passports and other valuables taken.

Many areas around Slane have a robbery problem, which was alleviated at Slane castle by the installation of a closed circuit television camera. Peter Whelan is working with Meath County Council to put an end to theft at Slane and the other associated areas. Contact us today to help out!

Slane Robberies Theft and Antisocial Behaviour

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
