Populism is the sow that is starting to eat its own bonhamhs. Eamon Ó Cuiv has asked that while the dispute between Galway County Council and Island Ferries Teo that the government should consider subsidising flights from Inis Mór for residents affected.
He proposes a return fair of €10 for adults, €5 for children and that pensioners should be allowed to avail of free travel for the duration of the dispute. No suggestion what he'd charge for livestock or sows!

The dispute is between the council and the ferry company. The council are charging 80c per passenger for the use of the pier in Inis Mór which the ferry company is resisting.

Eamon is no Mick O'Leary, that's for sure!

Eamon was never strong on the practicalities, more of a theoretical man, but you have to like him and his heart is always in the right place.

Is this the same pr1ck that was a cabinet minister in the last FF government and whose only solution was to encourage the nation to pray its way out of the economic crisis?

The fellow whose entire political career consists of references to his grandda and some similar glasses?

Maybe he should get everyone together in the locale and get them to pray for a free ferry.

If they all got up on his back, he'd walk on the water for them.
With his own two hands that his grandfather left him in his will. Along with some Irish sweepstakes tickets.

Eamon na deontaisi. Wasn't he famous for all the grants to his Galway West constituents.

Pure Haughey type populism.

Eamon is the last person ever to have served as Deputy Leader of Fianna Fail, when he was stood down, few noticed, when he wasn't replace no one cared.

I see the comedians have arrived.

The islands are lovely during in summer, but to live these families need year-round reliable access.

If the Council and the ferry operator cannot agree terms, Ó'Cuív's suggestion is worth considering.

He is one of the few politicians who has had any practical business experience. He was raised in the leafy suburbs of South Co Dublin. His father was a well known academic. With his connections and background he could have had a comfortable living in Dublin,

Instead as a young man he came West, to the remote village of Cornamona to manage a rural co-op. I know people who dealt with him there. They found him good to work with.

Politically, while being named Dev Óg was a help, he got where he is by dint of hard work. He never learned PR speak, says it as it is.

Imho DÉ would be better if there were TDs like him.

I'd support a free one way flight to Inis Mor for Eamon and his ilk.

Why wouldn't another operator come on the route? Eamon in cabinet sat around the table when public transport was discussed and access by private operators to bus routes. Why should his baliwick be different to anywhere else? If the ferry company want to play hard and fast with their customers, why should the tax payer pick up the tab?

Eamon has a business experience, what other business would behave like this and expect the state to reward them?

I think his father also used the "v".

He has done a lot to promote the Irish language

Ó Cuiv is Ireland's Marine Le Pen

Populist quasi fascist ultra nationalist who relies on family heritage to get the public eye

The proposition is extreme mischief making by him ... with an eye only on headlines .. like The Donald ... Ó Cuiv can't bear to be out of the press

His heart being in the right place is no coincidence for the carpetbagger stealing a living on his resemblance to his grandfather while buying votes.

A carpetbagger who enriched himself out of the Co-Op in Cornamona, and bought every vote he ever got.
