You remember the drama over whether or not someone had thrown themselves in the river?

Neville needed to go to town this morning and met one the Guards involved so asked what news about the young man who'd apparently gone off to Shannon...he had been at home all the time safe and well and with his mother who had reported both him and the car missing in the first place and it was 'some sort of hoax'...

They're thinking about charging him or both he and his mother for wasting Guarda time...

I don't know whether the Guards drove the car all the way back to Clare which is where they live...it's over a hundred miles...hope they didn't. Hope they made the stupid eejits come and collect it...and how did he get from here back to Clare anyway...there isn't any kind of a direct route to hitch-hike...trains are like hens teeth and there aren't any buses or coach routes either...

One of our neighbours walked miles up the riverbanks looking for a body, or so she thought...the underwater search and rescue people came out...the rest of the neighbours were walking back and forth along the banks when they have farms to attend to...

Everyone was upset and really worried...

Stupid...stupid and stupid.
