Looks like the Healy-Raes have done it again.
The guise of a fool seems to work REALLY well for Danny Healy-Rae.
They managed to get their constituents a shuttle bus to and from the Pub at a cost of €450,000 to the tax payer. (pilot scheme only mind you, in 50 communities )
They must be the best politicians in the country, constituents love them, non-constituents hate them.
I'd LOVE a drink link to the local boozer. It's a 20 min walk to the local cruiser for me (Raheny, Dublin)
I know there is a Nite Link service from Dublin City centre out to the suburbs, but it's not the same. I want to be picked up from the Pub at at 11pm and dropped to my front door without having to pay a Taxi man!!!!
This is the best bit:
Critics of the service say its timing deliberately coincides with strict new drink driving laws putting first time offenders off the road.
Minister Ross says it is just a coincidence.
