Many people (including myself) answered Damien Mulley’s call for help with converting the garda road deaths statistics page to a news feed. A free tool, feed43 seemed to be most people’s weapon of choice.
Take your pick, John kelly was first out of the blocks followed rapidly by Bernar with his more detailed effort. Yours truely was two days late with this effort (serves me right for not reading the comments).
Bottom line is that feed43 is a great screen scraping tool for creating feeds.
Gene Pitney passed away yesterday. I will always remember as a child listening to The Man who Shot Liberty Valance over and over again on an eight track cartridge as we drove from Luton to Holyhead on the way back to Dublin for Christmas.
He was legend then and that was over 30 years ago…
