Corruption Watch

First the local authority railroaded the Eyre Square monstrosity through in the face of fierce local opposition, and now the contractors have walked off without explanation. Babbleogue provides coverage.

Also, Gavin is keeping an eye on the long-running Aquatic Centre scandal. Seeing Bertie mutter at his feet in the Dáil yesterday evening about "the wind" being to blame for the collapse doesn't inspire confidence, it must be said. (More from RTÉ)

And, Martin Cullen is still a disgrace, but unfortunately he fits in too well with certain of his ministerial colleagues.

That the Carrickmines Castle problem arose from rampant planning corruption is obvious. That his presumed 'cure' (continuing on in the same vein as the shafting of Dúchas) will only exacerbate the problem is an unfortunate coincidence.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.
