“Aah suburbia – where they tear out the trees and then name streets after them !”

Came across this in one of the newspapers recently and thought how true !  My relatives in Holly Road and Sycamore Place would agree it’s a good job they didn’t start naming streets after some of the townlands in our area !  Can you imagine telling people your address was “Templeshaughnessy Drive”, “Coolaholliga Avenue” or the lovely “Gortnahoo Square”.
