Irrelevant I fear. The South Dublin Council momentum to rezone City West is more or less unstoppable.
Once this happens Mansfield will proceed to complete his erection as a convention centre whether ABP likes it or not.
Thereafter, the pressure on the Government to co-fund anything else will be minimal. (Anyway Mansfield will probably be off to the EU Commission or European Court complaining about anti competitive State Aids or something if the Government incentivises or co-funds a city centre competitor)
