Arklow gets no euro converters
The Arklow District was one of the few areas not supplied with the pocked-sized Euro converters by the Euro change-over board as promised.
But, in a bid to ensure that the people of the town don't feel short changed, the board has promised to supply converters to anyone who requests one by dialling 1890201050. Cllr. Nicky Kelly has branded the failure to supply households in the area with the converter in the run up to the introduction of the new currency as 'a shambles'.
Some people in the Arklow area were doubly aggrieved becaused the missed out for a second time as they did not get the promised Millennium Candles either-the candles were too big to be delivered through the letter boxes.
Cllr. Nicky Kelly said that he has been contacted by many people in the wider Arklow area who have been disappointed because they did not receive the calculators they were promised.
