This local news story from Wexford about leaves being ‘too big’ is excellent

“The amount of people slipping on them is unreal.”


A post shared by Aine Gleeson (@ainegl) on

WINTER IS CLOSING in around the country, and the last vestiges of that lovely leafy Autumn is quickly being replaced by darker evenings.

The resulting wet leaves are, of course, a danger – but Gorey in Wexford are suffering terribly from an attack of MASSIVE ones on the road.

It’s been talk of the county council, according to this week’s Gorey Guardian

One of the Councillors expressed grave concern:

the leaves falling from the trees on the Main Street are massive. They are not normal sized leaves. The amount of people slipping on them is unreal.

The story is making waves across the county:

“I’ve never been more proud to be from Gorey”

The story finishes with a particularly good quote from the naturally concerned representative:

The leaves are also costing a fortune to sweep up and you are swimming against the bloody time because a good breeze and you are back to square one.

If only they were regular sized leaves, it would be grand.
