I do sympathize with this sentiment even they I very much want to see a Catalonia and think it's positive nationalism is the way of the future and the antidote to neo liberalism's agenda.I am from Dublin. I work in town. The place is in a state unfortunately. The town and its population have many issues. I’m quite annoyed they prioritized the organisation of this statement over of these issues. They were elected to Run Dublin, not this.
The people Ireland elected to make these statements (central government) said they don’t recognize Catalans independence. Local government should get their priorities in order.
But does this not reveal the impotence of Dublin council more than anything.
