Reply To: an taisce-and rumours of them going bust
Ms. Non Taiscist:
With reference to your comments, An Taisce is not a popularity club. The proposal for a complete ban on one-off housing is a fighting fire with fire excercise: in an ideal world no-one would propose a complete ban on one-off housing, but the magnitude of the problem in Ireland is so overwhelming that it is a necessary measure. And look, now it is a contentious debate, whereas before it was just happening undocumented.
Some of your perceptions of An Taisce are very anachronistic. I suggest you take a surf around its website to update yourself (http://www.antaisce.org).
Lastly, as one who is peripherally involved in the organisation, I concede that there are too many “martello tower preservation society” types still involved for its own good.
