Cork Limerick Motorway

What have Cork TDs done for cork in recent years, ZERO me thinks

In terms of Motorway, Airport, and Event Centre the Cork TDs have done the square root of f**k all over the last 10 years!!! And as someone else pointed out, the refurbishment of Kent Station seems to have hit the buffers (soz).

Meanwhile our "National Government" are thinking about splurging another 2Billion on the latest Luas extension.

The Cork TDs should hang their heads in shame that so little of the national finances has been spent on infrastructure here. The oiks from the midlands, west, and south east of this country can't believe their luck having such little fight in terms of disbursement of infrastructure finance.

Our Shinnerbot forgets the recession and financial meltdown over the past
"10 years"

The amount of cash available for extra expenditure and tax cuts – is just €500m and more than a third of this will be needed to cover the recently-agreed public sector pay increases, so there will be less that €350m to work with. A €2 billion per year program spend on infrastructure is being outlined next month.

Stacky forgets that in the same time as "the recession and financial meltdown over the past" there were Motorways built to gombeenville in the wesht, south east, and midlands. And Dublin Airport expanded as well as the Luas.

He's a typical FFG apologist - "ye Cork people should realise that National Government can't finance everything as there's been a recession"

No shit Sherlock! While much of the country has been having it's infrastructure improved Cork has had nothing but a sod-turning exercise despite the fact that we're the biggest economy here outside the pale, and that's despite the "National" government, not because of it.

Cork City and County has been very badly served by our politicians over the last 10 years. High time something was done about it despite the "There was a recession on" platitudes lapped up and repeated by the Dinnybots

During which recession exactly were motorways built to the West of Ireland? (recession officially ended spring 2013)

Cork even had the Bandon Road flyover completed during the start of the last recession.

Luas is funded by EU funding, local development levies and operates without State subvention as a private company.

All the other developments you mention were completed before the downturn.

Which public services would you have cut exactly to fund infrastructure during the recession/bailout and loss of sovereignty?


Still awaiting your list of "hard-right parties" in Ireland in the Dail Sound_y?

Who says the recession officially ended at the start of 2013?? You're another of those "Let's keep the Recovery going" Dinnybots aren't you.

And if the recession ended nearly 5 years ago why the need to wait another up to 10 years for a Cork Limerick Motorway.

Completed BEFORE the downturn? What are you on about???? The cross-town Luas is being built - is none of that coming from national purse?
The extension to Dublin Airport? The Motorway in Caaaaaaaarlow?

"Jump to Carlow to Knocktopher - The first part of this section between Junctions 9 and 10 (Danesfort-Knocktopher) comprising 12 km of motorway was opened on 22 March 2010"

No, I've never heard of Knocktopher either, but it's got a motorway. in 2010. Even by your ludicrous calculation of when the recession did or didn't end (depending on what point you're trying to make at the time) slap bang in the middle of it there were villages/hamlets what the f**k is Knocktopher - getting Motorways.

While you've been sleeping or hunting down those welfare defrauders per your latest instructions from Varadkar there was another stretch of Motorway M17 opened a couple of months ago in the west of Ireland linking towns with a combined population amounting to about that of Mallow that stretches for about 55Km at a cost of 550M Euro.

Probably best you have a lie down for yourself before you do yourself any more harm Stacky :lol:

The C.S.O.O.E.C.D.,E.C.B. and I.M.F.

Planning, design, compulsory land purchases and build period.

Planned in the 1990's and already explained to you as to how the Luas is funded

"Jump to Carlow to Knocktopher - The first part of this section between Junctions 9 and 10 (Danesfort-Knocktopher) comprising 12 km of motorway was opened on 22 March 2010"

Planned, commenced and funded via E.U. and State funds secured over 20 years ago.

This section motorway will be funded by an annuity from the State to the private contractors over a period of 25 years.

It is very easy to tear apart the Shinner perma-protest, anger and outrage.

What's a Dinnybot?
 
None of the establishment parties, SF/FF/FG/Labour have done anything of note for Cork: SF use this to fit their multi national “sit on the fence and bitch about everything” policy as per normal.

“Dinnybots” “Crooked Hillary,” “FFG” “Mainstream Media,” all that kind of bolloxollogy works when you’re trying to build a populist movement around your crackpot policies.

The rest of the political establishment take it in turns to give SF material
