Noone prepared to wage war on the Japs
Davitts controversial head groundsman John A Noone has threatened chemical warfare on the dreaded Japanese knotweeds (Fallopia Japonica) currently occupying some of the club’s territory at the back of the stand in Davitt Park. Those weeds have existed in harmony with the locals for decades but recently have begun to show aggressive tendancies which Noone is determined to nip at the buds. He says he is currently seeking the advise of some renowned local horticultural experts including Michael Hynes, Michael ‘Wally’ Waldron, Michael Hett and Michael ‘Greenfingers’ Stephens, in an attempt to get to the root of the problem, although some of the more cynical club members believe that Noone is just taking the Mick. Watch this space for progress reports on one man’s battle against the potentially lethal threat from the east.
