Jesus FG are so temperamentally unsuited to getting on with people. First they brief against Ross, now they brief against Halligan. Boxer Moran must be feeling like Martin Niemoller


Just to track this Tourette's that FG have, today in the Irish Times they
- briefed against zappone on childcare. Zappone who is only just in the Dail ended up looking more sensible and reasoned on the news - saying 'we're in discussions'
- briefed against Shane Ross about judicial appointments commission - 'Nobody in FG wants it and nobody in the DoJ wants it. It won't happen'
I suppose there must be a long queue of FG lawyers who they're looking to appoint. The fact that the mandarins in Justice don't want something is a clear indication that it would be transparent and progressive.

If the government collapses over something trivial all this history of sniping and briefing will be a big part of the story

He's coming home. The poor crater.

Will Ross be out to welcome him back?

That's the last they'll be seeing of him. Having said that, he's already served more time there than he ever would even if arrested, tried and found guilty of criminal corruption here.

I bet Pat can't wait to get back to start firing off solicitor's letters.

How's Kevin Mallon getting on I wonder? I must have missed Marion Finnucane dedicating half a show to him.

Irish Water’s €80m Stillorgan reservoir plan meets resistance

Irish Water’s plans for an €80 million redevelopment of the Stillorgan reservoir have hit a number of hurdles, including demands from a local authority that 60 per cent of the lands to be turned into a public park.
Minister for Transport Shane Ross has also called for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council to refuse permission for the scheme on the grounds that it would not provide sufficient water for the area’s future needs.

Separately Mr Ross has asked the council not to allow Irish Water to fill in and landscape the two smaller reservoirs, but to retain them for future consumption needs. He asked that the council reject the application “in a bid to encourage Irish Water to make better use of the reservoirs that are currently in place at the Stillorgan site”.

Leo Varadkar, Joan Burton and Jack Chambers objecting to residential developments
The Council gave the go-ahead to demolish Brady's pub at the Old Navan Road, Castleknock, to construct four four-storey apartment blocks on lands zoned for residential development.
Mr Varadkar said he was certain that the plan "will impact on the residential amenity and property values of neighbouring homes". He argued that "the application must be rejected in favour of a more appropriate residential or mixed-use development for this site". http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/va ... 78127.html
