I wouldn’t trust their judgement – they don’t have any.
Can’t agree more and a party who should be on the forefront of public transport development I find them and their eh “judgement” very depressing at times.
Their idea of a public transport project is a wee bog railroad though County Mayo with three trains a day to be built for a minimum cost of â‚¬300 million. Meanwhile when Irish Rail comes up with a brilliant plan to move 60,000 passengers an hour through central Dublin under the city centre, they have little or nothing to say about it (to be fair all the other parties are just as bad). Yet they fall over themselves to prove to farmers in Mayo and Sligo that they will fight for their vital railway through the land of one-off housing.
The Irish Green Party’s approach to public transport development at best seems purely philosophical in nature, as part of some general environmentalist overture and not anything of substance. Eamon Ryan is a nice and intelligent guy, but the Irish Green Party really needs to forget about making some catholic priestâ€™s life-long dream of using Irish taxpayers money to build a giant Hornby Railway in honour of some alleged 19th century paranormal event at the Knock Marian Shrine and concentrate on where the real problems are and where the real solutions are needed.
