Queues everywhere. Plenty of work and jobs. I think media might be making this out to be more than it actually is.

Ate out this evening, it was packed. People who hadnt booked a table were being turned away at the door. On a Wednesday.
What crisis?

Christmas is championship season for shops, pubs, and restaurants. The first proper championship for most people in 3 years.

How many of these punters will still be turning out once the McKenna Cup rolls around?
