Driving the agenda on city traffic chaos
Dublin City Council chief executive Owen Keegan is not a man who deliberately courts controversy, but it has managed to find him twice in the one week.
His comments about what he regards as the hollow logic at the heart of the Christmas takeover of Apollo House earned him few friends, even if much of what he said on the topic was little more than common sense.
Today his views on the future of the motor car in the city centre is likely to irritate a different constituency just as much. But he deserves to be heard because while his forthright delivery tends to inflame passions, again he speaks a lot of common sense.
