Because the electorate know that the talentless gob********************es who are the rest of their choices in Limerick (bar Noonan) have no chance of getting near power. When Dessie O'Malley was running he used to pull in a running mate on two quotas also. It's O'Dea or irrelevance, unfortunately.Why in gods name do Limerick folk vote O'Dea in with such a majority each time, he should be strung up for abject failure in looking after the city.
It's impossible but social mix is the key. We tried it with Part V of the 2000 Planning Act but the Builders of Destiny p1ssed all over it.What do you do with a hardcore of thugs, criminals and dysfunctional families? Spending billions knocking what were once perfectly good houses and rebuilding them as perfectly good houses makes no sense. We have to come up with a plan to deal with the feral families in some of our social housing estates (I wish I knew what that answer was).
O' Dea, Noonan, the O'Malleys etc- what a dysfunctional county.Because the electorate know that the talentless gob********************es who are the rest of their choices in Limerick (bar Noonan) have no chance of getting near power. When Dessie O'Malley was running he used to pull in a running mate on two quotas also. It's O'Dea or irrelevance, unfortunately.
Limerick Regeneration Masterplan revealed - Limerick LeaderThe Interim Chief Executive of the Regeneration Agencies, Brendan Kenny, acknowledges that it is the worst economic climate to launch a Master Plan of this scale.
"The reality is, yes, we are going to Government looking for funding at probably the worst economic climate over the last 30 maybe 50 years, which is ironic for the people living there, that they lived through an unprecedented economic boom over the last 15 years and really didn't benefit from it.
"However, we have a mandate from Government to do this job. It's a job that has to be done, it needs to be done. You will never get investment unless you have a plan and now there is a plan not just for Moyross, St Mary's Park, Southill and Ballinacurra Weston but it has now been amalgamated into a plan for the regeneration of Limerick," Mr Kenny told the Limerick Chronicle.
Agreed. It got little or no investment during the "boom". Galway was promoted as the 3rd city because Limericks boundary issue made a very easy case for it having a smaller population and the Mid West was left to rot. There is still over 20k more people in Limerick than there is in Galway but it is still being pushed as the 3rd city. The majority of Limericks "boom" time centred around DELL and little else, and we all know how that turned out.This Government doesn`t care about the Mid West.
This regeneration like the school building program will be put off indefinitely. The spin will be the contracts are going out to tender very soon..................
Shannon Airport - nearly gone
Tourism in the Mid West - down 30%
Brosnan committee - haven`t heard a dickie bird yet
Dell - reacted too late
