A most singular response.

infastructure is not the real issue.

This was (and is, despite some contextualising debate) about the PD’s proposal on Dublin port. I provided some thoughts on the attitude to infrastructural development in the Republic.

We changed a great deal in the early 1990’s and trying to compare Pre 1990’s with Post 1990’s is not valid.

Given that we changed a great deal between the early 90s and the pre 1990s, comparisons between both periods are perhaps even more valid and justified. If we have no comparison with the Pre1990s, then we cannot even talk about the Celtic Tiger which is itself derived from the comparative notion of Ireland before and after 1990-4.

Pre 1990’s we had a large number of issues to sort out. We werent helped by anyone really and had one hand tied behind our back with emmigration and the north .

The billions upon billions we received from the EU (and still do!!!) does not qualify as help? As regards Northern Ireland, I ams till waiting to here how it affected the Republic’s economy. Ya, it may have detered some investment in the border counties, it may have cost the army, the guards, and the prison service some extra money, but we rae not talking about major amounts of the nation’s resources. You could cross the border at Blacklion during the height of the troubles and there would have been about 5 Irish soldiers and three gardai there at any one time. There was never a major secuirty operation of any prolonged duration that brought the Republic’s economy to the brink of collapse or anywhere near it.

The english built that motorway in the north. Not anyone from northern ireland. So they didnt make any progress themselves. They never progressed an inch..

I do not know how to respond to this. The British Government (not ‘the English’) probably resourced the building of NI’s motorwayS through British tax payers money (that would include taxes paid by workers in NI). What building company physically built the motorways, I do not know. I am sure though that a load of English workers did not pile into a ship to come to build it – local labourers probably contributed a great deal. I could be corrected on that if someone knows a great deal about the building of NI’s motorways.

The north got on so well because the anglo saxon government in england decided to pump the north with millions and millions to try and show up the new state in the south.

!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anglo-saxon government in england. Time to do a bit of research on the cultural, ethnic and political history of our closest neighbour.
