A Camlough man has had to have his vocal chords removed due to his non-stop talking we can report.
John Hughes a civil servant was the subject of a ‘Just Giving’ online charity campaign set up by locals in the village to ‘remove vocal chords and wire up his jaw rendering him unable to vocalise otherwise normally.’
We spoke with fundraiser Paul Waters from his office in the Shane O’Neill’s GAA club and he told Newry Spud:
“We had to do it not just for the village residents but for John’s poor family. Imagine having to listen to thon whinging 24 hours a day? It doesn’t bear thinking about.”
