    Has any one else noticed more and more kids "collecting " at the door, we had 3 lots in Tullyallen last night, I have started to get a bit suspicious of sponser cards and the like ..I gave a couple of euro to the first two lots but the third one on closer inspection was collecting for a " Traveller Kids Halloween Party" :shock: "

    If they call again I am releasing the effing dog .

    And noticed the first round of kids who I did give money to, later on in the Mace shop buying an extraordinary amount of sweets..mmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    Hahahaha you got stung big time didnt ya!!!

    I never sponser these things at all. If my ds comes home with a sposer card for soething i would never let im around the houses to ask people either. He goes to my parents , me and his dad….thats suficient enough I think. Its only a donation thats needed.

    Tell them No thanks!! 🙂

    Definitely a scam.

    We had them around our estate looking for sponsorship for some Traveller party, it was a while ago so cant remember what exactly the party was for. I just asked them loads of questions and then ran them, wasnt happy with their answers.

    Think there was a bit in the Leader about this at some stage over the summer hols.

    Hate all those Airtricity, Eircom etc cold callers. They always manage to call when I m bout to sit down with a cuppa 👿

    have had the callers at the door too during the week as well for the travellers halloween party, they go around at xmas as well,

    Plus what bugs the cr@p out of me is they ring the doorbell at 8.30pm when the kids are in bed!! GO AWAY!!!

    While we are on the subject of doors I AM SICK 😈 of junk mail etc being put thrrough my letterbox!!! Does anyone have a no junk mail sign on their door and do they pay any heed to it??
