I agree with the senator, although from my reading of the article the Minister has said it will be done.
Why wasn’t he demanding this in the media when his party was in power, it would be done by now?
Political point scoring as usual O’Domhnaill?
this has to be the joke of the day, BOD now asking for the gweedore sewage scheme to go ahead when his party was in power during the money years and all they did was build more and more houses in unsustainable areas. he was chairman of the strategic planning committe on donegal county council from 2004-2007 and all he seemd to be intersted in was building building building with no concern whatsoever for the associated infrastructure. Ah sure what would you expect from a man who told us he was not going to let the IMF run the country and was found to be bluffing once again.
I remember BOD pushing for this when HIS party were also in power. It is easy to say that he should of got it when they were in power. But things take time.I am from the Gweedore area and I talked to him about this 3 years ago. He said that he will do all he can to get it done. He is doing that.
As to the IMF thing, BOD was lied to by his party leader at a party conference in Castlefin. How do I know this, I was there when Cowan said it. BOD could of walked away from Cowan and his cronnies there and then, or he could of believed that one man (in this case the useless Cowan) isn’t the party. He did the later, knowing full well that he would take flak from people like John Ferry for a long time. BOD believed that FF with the right leadership could be a force for good. I believe every party can be.
I didnt vote for FF, because of the way they hung o domhnaill that night in Castlefin. ButI have the utmost respect for BOD for perservering with what he believes in, and sticking with a party that were in for a beating.
It is all too easy to throw words and allegations at people when one does not know the facts. That is a recurrent theme. All too sadly.
you said it takes time my father god rest him went and collected signatures from every house in Gweedore about 30 years ago to get a sewage system in Gweedore how much time do they need
