This afternoon.

Dublin 8.

Not a meaningless photo opportunity then.

This morning.

Dolphin’s Barn, Dublin 8.

Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government Simon Coveney with Dolphin’s Barn residents Veronica Lally (right) and Debra Mulhall, announcing details – already widely known – of the Regeneration Scheme for Dolphin’s Barn.

It’s almost as if there’s a Fine Gael leadership campaign underway or something.

    Did they put him in a photo shoot with children so Harris would look less like a teenager?

      Have you ever noticed the chameleon-esque grey streaks running through the guy’s hair? Sometimes they’re there and sometimes they’re not. It’s almost like the grey is sprayed in to make him look older or something!

    It’s come to this. Children forced to build their own hospital because the government won’t.

    Should have been built in blanchardstown.
    Rotunda moving to Blanch hospital, and the national childrens hospital is going to be in an extremely difficult to reach location for emergencies

    Children are notoriously bad builders, I wouldn’t give them the gig at all. Too small and they cry a lot. At least see if they can manage a simple block tower before going whole hog and giving them the hospital contract.

        They charge too much now, I think the Romanians do you a better deal and work all hours the Lord gives them

    To quote another individual, a la the good old tribunals.
    In answer to the question, big cheery grin, can they build it.
    The reply, can they F..k.
    And not sure to be honest if they can ehh, even ehh, do, that.
    Though to be fair screwing the statelet is a favourite pass time of many a politican and let it be said business folk but no dodgy business of course.

    Coveney probably went away immediately & had a shower. Wouldn’t say he would be happy mixing with the locals.

      Blanch. There’s a ridiculous amount of open land there for building on and the Rotunda is moving there.
