Cork-Limerick Motorway was longfingered again in 2016/17 with a "promise" that there'd be a start within 10 years. Risible that we'd have to wait til then for the start of works on it to take so long. And you can be damn sure that any hit to the Irish exchequer then Cork-Limerick will be the first to fall by the wayside.

Meanwhile in Dublin it's very important to expand the Luas and another terminal in their airport
Bit tinfoil hatty, Buddy...

This is mainly about money... And how much of it the WEst needs v's how much the South needs...

So let me understand you here - you think the central funds are better spent linking smaller towns in the midlands and west than the second and third biggest urban areas in the jurisdiction?

Tinfoil hat indeed

If the North voted to join us, would we be obliged, under the Good Friday Agreement, to accept them?

Is that the M6, which links Galway to Dublin? That is like saying the M8 links Mitchelstown to Cashel. It does of course by virtue of the fact it's linking Cork to Dublin

I thought it was more to do with Enda's corner of the country being connected to Dublink tbh.

It's just nuts that Cork and Limerick aren't connected by motorway.

The M6 was completed in 2009, Enda didn't come to power till 2011. However I do think Mickey Noonan was the one that held the Cork/Limerick motorway back

Wasn't there at least one extension to that motorway going west when Enda was in power?


It is weird alright that Noonan was said to be the main blocker of the Cork-Limerick Motorway. Story went that he feared such an mway would help favour Cork by making an international airport within a relatively short drive of Cork and better heeled business people being able to commute more easily between cities with the result that the larger of the two would grow a lot quicker
