Poolbeg: A typical fiasco

IT is good news indeed that, even in these recessionary times, a number of Irish companies are "poised" to invest tens of millions of euro in new environmentally friendly waste disposal technologies that will create thousand of jobs.
That is according to the Environment Minister John Gormley.
Mr Gormley was making the point that even if the US firm behind the Poolbeg incinerator pulls out of the project, with an incidental loss of 500 jobs, it doesn't really matter very much.
