the end justfies the means . his means resulted in delaying completion of the project, not a better project. this is why he is an old fart. he did not articulate a viable alternative, unlike frank mcdonald. why is he given so much attention?
Maybe try reading jimg and Thomond’s posts above? :rolleyes:
They express the facts of the matter pretty clearly. Can’t you read that he advocated a full metro line including underground sections which I clearly recall reading about at the time? Personally I think he was and is dead right as any luas between Stephen’s Green and the North Side is going to be ridiculously slow (Connolly to Heuston anyone? On streets far more choked with pedestrian activity?) and potentially quite visually disturbing to College Green.I also find the “old fart” remarks pretty childish and beneath the usual high standard of discussion on these boards…
