Dail reform is important, but homelessness is bigger issue
Dail reform and new politics started life on an old note last Thursday.
The Ceann Comhairle, Sean O Fearghail of Fianna Fail, was elected under a system that is supposed to have heralded in an era of Dail reform.
Sean is a thoroughly decent man. He will probably make a good chair of the Dail. He is an immensely able and popular deputy. He has one problem: his election, the first flag of Dail reform, was a travesty of transparency.
