Where There’s Muck


This afternoon.

Taoiseach, Micheál Martin, with brass band accompaniment, unveiling plans for a multi-million state of the art music campus in Balbriggan, County Dublin.

The Irish Institute of Music and Song (IIMS) campus promises a new IIMS School, a ten-room luxury boutique hotel, a Café & Restaurant and the “the Lark” a brand-new state of the art 400 seat concert hall…’

    Our placeholder Taoiseach has spent the last year decimating the hospitality and entertainment industries, and he has the gall to open one. I don’t think the Irish people will appreciate the irony of that. His feeble attempts to rescue a legacy for himself and rehabilitate his image in the last few months left to him will backfire. You are a criminal, Michael. Just a matter of time now before that catches up with you.

      And the big question is the boutique hotel?
      Who gets the profits ?
      Who is going to fund the building and fitting out ?
      Then the concert hall?
      Will the management be tendered out or is this another scam for the boys
      And will this hotel be like the national maternity hospital ending up costing five time the price

      Why not just build a music college full stop ?

      I used to love going to Lambert’s as a kid.

      As an aside, that music centre is brilliant. They’ve done a really good job on it and it’s been such a positive addition to the community.
