Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

weekend in Ennis, Co Clare, were in a celebratory mood when conference business drew to a close.

After dinner on Sunday night out came the guitars, accordions and songs. Outgoing president Sean Murtugh Fiona Martin Jimmy Quinn sang a very passable version of "Me and Bobby McGee" while Clare operator Eamonn Morrissey regaled the party with country hit "Past the Point of no Return", which he hotly denies is an anthem for the haulage industry.

Accomplished performer Sean Murtagh of Limerick's Freightshift Services rose to his feet and, in the absence of a nearby microphone, improvised by singing into the end of his tie. In the wee hours the mood turned bluesy as Fiona Martin of insurers Bradstock Blunt slowed things down with sultry versions of "Fever" and "Summertime".

Eamorm With so much talent around you wonder why any of Morrissey these people bother with the haulage industry.

Was it the lateness of the hour (6am) or the man from CM threatening to sing "My Way" that finally persuaded everyone to turn in? Few who were there can remember.
