Cllr Davy Hynes jets home from South Korea with plenty of stories to tell
Davy Hynes recently flew in from a ten day trip to Seoul and according to him, we can learn a thing or two from the South Koreans.
The independent councillor was in the city to pay a visit to his daughter Aine who has been working as an English teacher there for two years. While on his travels, Cllr Hynes said he couldn't help but notice how clean the city is.
'It's an absolutely huge city but it's very clean. There is no graffiti, no dog dirt and no rubbish,' he said.
'There is also a great respect for older people there. If on the subway or bus, younger people always offer their seat to any elderly passengers.'
Cllr Hynes also took the opportunity to sample the local culture and see some sights.
'There is a huge amount of things to see or do there. We visited one of the main palaces used by one of the last emperors, as well as some big historical museums including a war museum,' he said.
