Re: Re: A Nation at War with its Capital City?
I saw this, and thought of this thread.
A Cork County Councillor has described plans for the extension of Cork city’s boundary as ‘being akin to Napoleon’s move on Russia’.
There have been similar issues in Limerick and Waterford, where the city boundaries are out of line with current realities, never mind future planning.
I donâ€™t know if the specifics of the new boundary proposal hold up to scrutiny in every detail. But someone depicting this kind of thing as an invasion is pretty much saying â€˜I vigorously support the idea that all development should be centred on Dublinâ€™.
