Re: Re: Limerick City Boundary Extension
It hasn’t been officially announced yet but from what I’ve heard, Willie O’Dea advised the City Council that he would only lobby the Environment Minister on the condition that the lands in Clare were dropped from the proposal! It seems ridiculous that a man of such little political talent could have this much influence but maybe he had gotten some feedback on the issue from John Gormley?
Maybe it was an unusual bit of pragmatism on his part in terms of actually having a chance of something going ahead?
I certainly would be of the opinion that one can worry about Clare later and the priority is Raheen/Castletroy.
The sooner Limerick Co. Co. are paying rates for their audacious headquarters just outside the current city boundary, the better.
