There are also doubts as to its constituitionality.
And Belgium has properly planned rural areas; despite being far more densely populated than Ireland (10 million people living in 30k km sq, as opposed to 4 mill living in 70k km sq) they don’t have this continuous suburbanisation of the landscape. They have sustainable villages, well preserved and well served by public services. We could learn a lot from those ‘meddling beaurocrats’.
And quant little Ireland does put food on the table, in the form of tourism revenue. Which, particularly if you take transfer payments out, is the single biggest industry we have.
