The government must finally have sorted out all the problems with the Health Service. They must have rebuilt all those schools that were falling down. They must have sorted out the mess that is Special Needs Care, and Care for the Elderly. In fact they must have resolved all those problems that have been plaguing us for so long.
Because they are spending €40,000,000 [yes – that’s forty million euro] on a cycleway along the Dublin coast from Sandycove to Sutton, and they could only be doing that if the money wasn’t needed anywhere else.
Now the people of Ireland, from Malin Head to Carnsore Point, from Louth to Kerry have been demanding this cycleway for years. It is almost a national obsession. It is a vitally needed resource that is going to bring in millions of euro to the country. Not to mention the tourists. This has been a political hot potato for decades. In fact, I can remember Eamonn De Valera mentioning the need for a cycleway from Sandycove to Sutton in one of his speeches back in the 60s.
So we can all rest happy now, safe in the knowledge that our money [yes – it’s our money; not the governments] is being spent so wisely.
Bertie – get on your bike…..
P.S. for those who don’t believe me –
