A local fundraiser from Camlough Pat McGinn has sensationally purchased the small rtraffic island coming into the village we can reveal.
Mr McGinn who spends every weekend standing on the traffic island with a bucket looking for donations made the bold move yesterday.
Pat told us from his newly bought piece of property:
“I spend so much time on this little spot that I thought I’d just go all out and buy the thing. When I’m at home with the wife I yearn for the traffic island in Camlough it’s become that important to me.
When the opportunity arose to buy it I couldn’t turn it down. It means I now can fundraise 7 days a week if the notion takes me. A win-win if you will.”
