Brides on the warpath

Certainly it's not funny for those involved, but this story about how the Gardai have been asked to attend a creditors meeting so that they can help insure that peace and order reign does have its amusing side for those of us who are only onlookers. The creditors are meeting to sort out the mess after the collapse of The Wedding Dress, a bridal shop in Cork. The creditors are afraid of those brides who may now be without both their money and their dress.

When the news of The Wedding Dress fiasco first broke a group of enraged brides-to-be stormed a wedding dress warehouse. I've heard rumors that accountants throughout the county have been urgently applying for short-notice vacation time starting Thursday - so great is the fear of these women.
