Craicers think MMM is Crackers

As a member of Irelands Motorhomecraic forum I, along with fellow members, can't really understand the MMM response to a letter regarding Motorhoming in Ireland.

Another member has queried their response, see below.

Motorhomecraic is a great resource for anyone considering touring Ireland, for some obscure reason MMM failed to mention this fact to their subscribers.

Editors in all publications dictate what is, and what is not, published in their particular papers.
The reasons for including and excluding items are not normally made public knowledge!

I try and state simple facts in a nice way.

I reckon it is simply lazy journalism. I have observed over the last number of years that when it comes to visiting Ireland (both parts) the same three or four campsites are trotted out for a mention. This applies to the C&CC as well as the 'big' commercial publications.

I dare say our Welsh and Scottish members have similar views on their own territory. I don't know about the English, but then who does !!

None of the Moho mags are the slightest bit interested in our hobby, only in making revenue from what is now a magazine full of mainly adverts, we stopped buying all of them, I read it in Morrisons now and put it back on the shelf, very little content worth reading, a waste of 3.46 per copy and that's if you subscribe, not looked at the shop price for a long time, but it'll be 4+

TBH the only magazine I've seen worth the cover price for a very long time is the BBC Focus mag, we subscribe to that one, and keep it to read when away if it's persisting down.

Its because you wrote in an Irish accent. They either couldn't understand you or thought you were "Travelers"

Erneboy - how perspiring you are:

"David Cameron asked a stupid question and got a stupid answer. Most people didn't even know what the question was and it seems now most hadn't expected their answer to produce what it has."
