But no doubt given his form for parish pump politics heâ€™ll have much too parochial an outlook to realise that this very thinking is being held up as an example across Europe of how not to go about planning, ie. a one-off free for all.
I’d say its not so much about whether he realises. It’s more that he and the people who vote for him don’t care. @MT wrote:

That kind of thing is all that matters to a large part of the electorate. Irish people seem largely unconcerned at any downstream implications.
The key mobiliser of Irish people seems to be GAA. If you are looking for some concept of allegience or society beyond that, I’m not sure it exists.
