‘Don’t be left stranded’ – Kilkenny Mayor warns of serious passport delays

KILKENNY travellers and holidaymakers who are planning a trip abroad have been urged to check their passports are in date as there is a severe backlog delaying applications.

And the Mayor of Kilkenny, Peter ‘Chap’ Cleere, has urged anyone who finds themselves in difficulty to contact him directly.

Cllr Cleere said:  “There are still serious delays for passport applications at the moment. There’s a backlog of over 60,000. This includes delays in passport express.

“If you are planning a holiday this summer or later this year, please check your passport. If you have any questions, or need any assistance, please contact me at any time.”

Cllr Cleere (pictured below) said the quickest way to renew your passport is to do so online, by logging on to: www.passportonline.dfa.ie.

He added: “If travelling within the EU, your passport must be still valid on your return date but for many countries outside the EU up to 6 months must remain on your passport on entry.”

    I invested a total of$95,000.00USD worth of Bitcoin with an online company who does trading and was guaranteed a payout of 25% a week. They ended up shutting down their company website but their website was still running. So I could still see my dashboard at that time and instead of paying weekly they ended up compounding my money. It ended up compounding to$179, 000USD so I requested for a withdrawal which was declined before they shutdown their website, I complained to my colleague at work who directed me about this recovery expert, Mr. Morris Gray, that helped him, I contacted him immediately, what surprised me most, was that I recovered my money that same week. You can contact him on his email at { MorrisGray830 at Gmail Dot com } and he will assist you on the steps to recover your invested funds.
    Just trying to help those who where scammed just the way I was too.
