Ah Limerick county’s love/hate relationship with the city resurfaces. There is several suitable towns that could have benefitted from the county offices being relocated there, and it would have alleviated some pressures on the city’s infrastructure. However since the county continues to encircle the city with badly serviced suburb after suburb, it’s clear that county/city divide is growing more fictional by the day. It’s inevitable that eventually the cityside country suburbs (raheen, castletroy etc) will eventually be as highly populated as the actual city itself, and in that sense it makes some ludacrious sense to base the county offices right on the city county border. The lunacy of this course would be hilarious if it wasn’t negatively affecting the region. The simple truth (imo) is that too many county officials want the perks that come with living/working in the city while actually technically in the county. It was an admirably short-sighted decision by the council, remarkable only in it’s incompetence.
