Reply To: The Spike
I agree with Sue that Ireland has had enough resources to build the spike as a stand alone project, in my opinion it has had these resources for at least a decade.
It is completely stupid that the spike is used as a stick to beat government with anytime a particular interest group or idiot feels that another subject area is underfunded. 😡
Focus & Simon should get more government cash for sure but there is a rationale enough to do this without cutting the urban renewal budget, ironically the places where most homeless people hang out.
The spike will pay for itself by contributing along with other improvements to reverse the decline in O’Connell St, therebye safegaurding the rates base. 😉
