The area immediately outside Cregmore National School in Co Galway resembled a scene from war-torn Beirut after a truck yesterday crashed into a car, jack-knifed, crashed through a wall and smashed into 11 cars.
Amazing journalistic work Brian McDonald of the Irish Independent! I wonder where you got that phrase from:
Principal of the 222-pupil boys’ and girls’ school, Joe Kennelly, said he could hardly believe what he was seeing as the incident unfolded. “Never in my life have I seen anything like this. It was carnage, like a scene from Beirut and yes, it was that bad,” he said.
It was that bad? Really? I don’t know what’s worse, a truck flying out of control or a school principal and a newspaper journalist with poor knowledge of the real world. Well, Joe and Brian, your individual “Looks Like Beirut” Certificates are on their way.
