Sir - I was very annoyed to read and see the article in your paper last week (Sunday Independent, July 26) - "Welcome to Carrick-on-Shannon."

Having recently moved back to Carrick after years of moving around, now age 57, I only see Carrick as a busy, clean and lovely place to now live in. A great business town, lovely tourist town and lots of employment.

I go to have a few drinks up the town every Saturday night. Myself and my husband walk to the last pub on the Main Street around 10pm and walk home around 1am. We never experience any hassle or abuse. Yes, we meet lots of well intoxicated young people who don't bother us. The town is well policed with lots of door bouncers, and the excellent Tidy Towns committee work all hours to keep the town clean.
