It’s always the quiet ones…
Just as we began working on a history of our little neighbouring village, Killincarrig, we discovered a shocking claim on our little town.
Apparently, here in Greystones, we all live in the shadow – and under the thumb – of Killincarrig.
At least, that’s according to Google Maps, who list our town as merely a province of our overlords, Killincarrig.
You want to find Greystones train station on Google Maps? Hey, there it is. On Church Road. In the People’s Republic of Killincarrig.
Need to stock up on some groovy old jewellery, and not quite sure where Greystones Antiques are situated?
Hey, there she sits, in sunny Killincarrig. Right beside the tiny village’s bustling train station.
Does Google know something that we don’t? Have our quiet little neighbours been quietly, secretly colonising their neighbour’s land whilst we were all busy sipping wine and nattering on about how super-great we are?
I reckon it’s all down to the Hattons, all that tireless community work and friendly smiles merely a front for unspeakable evil. Plainly, these guys are up to something. And they know they have the power to cripple Greystones should we resist. The feckers have Aldi. And we all need our €2 kayaks, especially with the new harbour kicking off.
One day, we’ll all be working for Danny and Marie Hatton, my friends. And we here at The Killincarrig Guide welcome our new overlords, and look forward to crushing more neighbours by stealth over the coming years…
