But it is surely in indictment of our politicians ineptness that the following are in varying degrees of bolloxology:

- Events Centre - Kenny did more construction work on this with the turning of one sod than what has been done since

- Dunkettle - joint top spot with the Events Centre, ah cher it's only a regional city bolloxology and won't the 2040 plan do them

- Ringaskiddy - how much longer??

- Limerick Motorway - let's do another study and waste a further €15 million before we do anything

- North Ring Road - I believe this should be done before the Limerick motorway, housing development stopped in Ballincollig due to it being on the planned route, at least it is still on someone's mind

- Luas - so many projects are going to happen towards the end of the 2040 plan, really I can't wait for 2039!!

- Commuter rail - when is the Blackpool station going to be built? Why is Mallow not on commuter rates? A number of train stations were but for when? when? when?

- Docklands bridge - I have seen a drawing but that's about it

I still believe having a directly elected mayor would have been a good move, their sole mandate would have been Cork, fail/succeed based on only those metrics. Our current crop of TDs will get away with it as they make it more about national politics than local......look what I am doing on Brexit, didn't I bring in the smoking ban etc. etc. etc.
In fairness, you make a good point. What's the point in being the Tanaiste if you can get fuck all done for your own city ? He needs to get shit over the line pdq.

Cork city has been excluded from the Government’s €84 million affordable housing plan while Cork county has been allocated just 245 of the 1,770 houses being built with the funds. Over 5,500 people are on the city’s housing waiting list.

Cork City Council has not been "excluded" as it simply did not have any housing schemes in the pipeline that required funding in this timeframe but it will be seeking same in the next round shortly.
