Suppose the only good thing is he's still minister during the clusteromnishambles going on in Dail Eireann at the moment and he'll remain in the job for duration of this event.

Meanwhile Robert troy is busy telephoning people in the council from the relative safety of mullingar, Dublin or anywhere except Athlone. Some leadership there...

Troys loyalties are to his commuters in Mullingar - kept seeing his ad on the M4 express bus. I doubt he knows directions to Athlone.

No sign of any of these gowls creating constituency offices or clinics in Athlone either. Town to goto sh1te till the next election.

The idea that Boxer Moran was the making of Athlone is a joke. He got money spent on flood defences, which are not finished for this flood. Many breakfast rolls sold to lads in hi viz. Not exactly a huge boost to the economy.

Actually he is also actively making cosmetic improvements to the town e.g approach roads, roundabouts, amenities, pushed for fast-tracking the cycle track extension and regularly uses his Saturdays with his sons to tidy up residential areas around the town.

Regardless of the opinions on Boxer, having zero TDs for a town this large is a bad thing.

This is true - elected as a member of our legislative body and appointed a government minister, he is often to be seen in a hi viz picking up litter.


No feckin idea that he is no longer just a town councillor. Well, he'll no longer be a TD either shortly.

She has been elected to the national legislator, part of the problem is parish pump politics. Let local councillors do what they are paid for.

When he was a councillor he looked for government funding repeatedly but fell on deaf ears. Now that he has some power, he's putting it to good use.

No idea what your issue is with someone helping make an area clean and nicer to live in. I'm the first to admit that I don't get involved, but more power to anyone who does. Shows that the notions of the bigger job never got to him. Hopefully his young lad follows on from his good job.

He might be better suited to local council than the Dail but there is no denying the trojan work he puts in. Absolutely breaking his boll*x for the people effected with the flooding in the locality these past days/weeks. Never got the hump over the pathetic lack of support he got from the town in the recent election. Fair play to him.

Hopefully he gets a nice warm shower somewhere soon.

Word from Wolfe Tone terrace - they complained that the Shannon Barrier created to save them from flooding was not glass/seethrough.

"It blocks our view of the River"

See it plenty if they take it down and it enters your kitchen love.

I read the bauld Boxer calling for pay allowances for army to be increased now due to all the work they are doing during the floods. If he had supported them before then I have no doubt that he'd have been elected again

Maybe he suspects there will be a return to the polls soon.
