    How about a brexit ring fence. All additional taxes from brexit goes towards infrastructure?

    Even with major foreign companies coming into Ireland after Brexit, I'd be very shocked to see the tax take go up over the next few years. I'd be over the moon if it even remained roughly level.

    It's more like the fox complaining that there are no chickens left in the henhouse to eat after killing them all the day before.

    The banking sector that is only interested in Ireland due to the non-existent corporate tax levels are not happy that the Irish taxpayer hasn't funded enough infrastructure after a decade of recession caused by the banking sector.

    Go on out of that. We've failed to invest in infrastructure more or less since the foundation of the state, unless it was to buy votes (motorways and railways to sparsely populated rural regions, under capacity trams that don't even connect for Dublin).

    Sorry, but the banks may be guilty of many things, but the infrastructure deficit in Ireland is not one of them. Dublin was deliberately starved of infrastructure because it was never popular with swathes of rural voters. Now that legacy is going to bite Dublin and by extension the entire country in the ass.
