Another proposal to build a "national" infrastructure in the middle of traffic riddled, congested, impossible to get into, expensive central Dublin.

Where it will create more of a problem for the children trying to visit it.

Why not build it in Kildare, or Portlaoise, or Athlone, or off the M50 ?

How exactly are the kids supposed to get there ?

Build these things where there is space to park a coach-bus outside.

The way these things are located is idiotic.

It would be easier for Dublin based kids to get to Naas, or Maynooth in a coach, than to get to D2.

Much easier to issue a press release to the press release recyclers than build it, it would seem.

This is Ireland so don't be surprised if someone objects because someone objects to everything in this country in the planning system.

Cuchulainn better be riding a dinosaur side-saddle or the Murphahideen and the O'Taliban will be on demanding it be closed down.

I wonder will Conor Lenihan be invited to the opening. Or constitute an exhibit.

'Ratticus Lenihanicus. Often found near water. Lives on bullsh*t'.

Thankfully....there is wikipedia.

Which also allows children to go to the best internationally available resources, instead of visit an impossible to reach location in the middle of the busiest traffic this side on central London.

This is another sign of insitutional excess, located in the wrong place, and built in an expensive manner.

We are in the midst of "peak-institutional-statism" in Ireland.

The solution to everything is the institutional state, officially. And the resources and power follow.

In reality, this entire philosophy is a load of nonsense. It is enforcing a culture of malaise and unaccountability.
