There has been widespread excitement and joy in Hilltown this week with the news that the small backward village will finally see an Austin Mini Metro car manufactured in 1980.
Hilltown is approximately 35-40 years behind Newry and other civilized parts of Ireland so the news that the Metro will be introduced has got the locals throwing street parties.
We spoke to one Hilltown resident who couldn’t remember his name:
“We are wild excited here in Hilltown to see this much talked about motorcar. We have been hearing great things about this machine for nearly 40 years now, the excitement in the village is palpable. Jaysus, we can’t wait at all boy.”
