Dude I was giving the facts. O’Connell street was built by Dublin Corporation and taxed from Dublin corporation’s revenue. It is not like Trinity College which was Elizabeth’s idea and financed from London, initially. These corporation members may have considered themselve loyal subjects of Empire but were born here, and Irish.

As if, we can just conjure up this magic, or pull it out of our arse, after 700 hundred years, making potato ridges

Sleveen cant. A similar statement about an African nation would be flagged as racist.

I would argue that it is such forelock tugging ideologies that holds the coiuntry back – the attitude that we should leave the country as the “British” left it to us, for why would a Paddy be building stuff. The general opposition to taller buildings is part of that, for instance.
