These kinds of people are driven by one thing only when you really get down to it. The GAA. It always comes down to making sure that the Parish Games have enough players in each muddy rain-soaked field next to a packed church for sunday mass. I have also long suspected that the GAA is unoffically involved in 'sweetening' these kinds of groups. The Catholic Church too. The weaponised Comley Maidiens faction.
Apart from their own myopia, they only other function they serve is to hold this country back and make it as expensive as possible.
Ironically rural Ireland is being killed by the one off housing / road frontage brigade. The same people who are complaining about this plan.
>>> 100% agree <<<
Everyone wants to live in their ugly monstrosity on an acre while simultaneously complaining about the lack of nearby services
What if you live in rural Ireland and do not play the Parish Games? Suicide?
You are also full of it. I know lots of planning decisions granted based on providing players for local parish clubs. This is a huge aspect of the one off housing ffs.
One player got planning permission for a large house with expansive frontage on a busy new N road (for his tractors) because he said he would play for the next parish if he did not get it. This kind of muppertry goes on constantly.
Of course those of us born and working here deserve local services too.
Also, observe the devious tactics of these rural mullahs. A major part of the 2040 plan is to finally make proper cities of Limerick, Cork and Waterford. Which is what makes it really good in my books. Yet what do they mention DUBLIN Airport.
Those of you defending these clowns on here don't be complaining when the Metro is cancelled because of them.
This is why we are the way we are infrastructure wise. The reason why Dublin is never developed begins as culture (GAA clubs and parish halls) in rural Ireland long before it becomes national politics.
You should be very afraid of these clowns. They have more influence over politicians and senior civil servants than the best planning and transportation consultants on the planet.
You can't have it both ways.
Want to be isolated then live with the isolation.
You are literally and metaphorically a blight on the landscape. :-)
Where exactly is local when you've kilometers upon kilometers of one off housing?
What a sh*tty attitude. Seriously.
They pay taxes for those services just like you. Public services are not a business or profit making exercise. All people who live in this county deserve the necessary public services no matter where they choose to live.
If you don't think the Government of Ireland should provide services to "the blight" then there should be a rural tax refund as they aren't getting services.
I'd take rural Ireland any day over living beside Fintan,Grace Chloe and their 2.3 kids in a 3 bed semi in South Dublin by the Luas line with views of the mountains through the apartment blocks next door.
Great I'm off to Rockall. When can I expect my school, hospital, roads, etc?
There is already a rural tax refund its called the subvention of Ireland by Dublin.
The GAA is great........ if you are on the team.
The higher the level of the team, the more benefit you get from the GAA.
Otherwise, the GAA does nothing for anyone in the community that does not benefit them directly
You do know that rural dwellers pay less tax?
And that city taxpayers subsidise rural Ireland?
Except Dublin and the greater Leinster region where almost 50% of the population live already heavily subside rural Ireland.
If rural Ireland were to rely on the taxation they pay alone it would look like a region out of a 3rd World country
A view of the mountains, you'll pay well for that
