Grangegorman


The announcement recently from the Government to cut all funding for the Grangegorman Development is hugely disappointing and shocking when you think of their election promise of 100,000 jobs.  It shows an unbelievable lack of imagination and begs the question was anybody in the Government parties promoting the project or even vaguely defending it ?  More worryingly the decision shows a real lack of commitment to recovery through development, education and employment not to mention regeneration of the north inner city and provision of quality health, education and community facilities.  I spoke first thing yesterday with the CEO of the GGDA and the authority is already working on a plan to save the project.  We have a  board meeting next week and I will give a further update then.
