"This Ireland geographical article is a stub. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it"

I wouldn't consider it a stub. If you have ever been to Fermoy, that paragraph just about explains everything :)

NPOV?[edit]

"the decision by Mary Harney to introduce risk equalisation to the Irish Health Insurance market, effectively forcing Bupa out of the Irish Health Insurance Market" - Kdivad 18:38, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

  • It's POV and speculation. I tidied it up and added a reference. - Alison 19:15, 23 January 2007 (UTC)


Famous Inhabitants[edit]

I've never heard of the 'famous' businessman, JJ Bunyan. Can anyone confirm this is a legitimate claim? Any references? (Sarah777 00:52, 15 February 2007 (UTC))

  • Sounds bogus to me. I'm from the Mallow area, BTW - Alison 00:59, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
  • I know this guy, he has been CEO and chairman of several successful IT companies, most of them were sold privately- no Nasdaq stuff, but would think the guy is worth in the region of €100 million according to 'The Phoenix' magazine

Re-rate[edit]

This was a fairly good article but recent additions are not helping. Needs an editor. Sarah777 (talk) 23:06, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Save Fermoy Weir?[edit]

Is this encyclopoedic? I think it should be removed from the article. Seighean (talk) 18:11, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Not sure. He has a cite and it seems valid. We can't just remove - that would be censorship. I suggest getting a contrary view for the sake of balance ClemMcGann (talk) 01:47, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

"The Weir Saga" (as the local paper calls it) is one of the most controversial proposed developments that the town of Fermoy has seen. It is a "live" issue in the town at the moment. I don't apologise for being one of the people involved in the campaign but would suggest that the language in the entry is as neutral as possible. As to the inclusion of the link, surely this external link is as valid as any other? -D. O'Keeffe D. O'Keeffe (talk) 21:10, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

it should be a reference rather than a link ClemMcGann (talk) 23:39, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Why?

The external link surely refers the interested reader toward the relevant site and, as you said yourself, the site is valid. You're right, a contrary opinion would balance our website. The problem is, the proposed work was sold as necessary, indeed essential, because "Europe" would fine Ireland out of existence if it were not carried out. We went to Europe and have proven these claims to be groundless.

So, best of luck finding a valid contrary perspective. We are a small group of citizens fighting against the forces of central government. The only strength we've been able to harness is our own innate weakness.

Hopefully, David always has at least a shot at winning. And fair play to you for your stance against censorship.

D. O'Keeffe (talk) 01:02, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

you ask "why?" - because the external links are for fermoy itself - references are to support specific statements in the article - regards - ClemMcGann (talk) 01:49, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
