Locals are living in fear in a ‘square mile of death’ says Councillor Nial Ring who represents the north Dublin inner city area which is under siege after another killing this week in the Hutch-Kinahan gangland war.
So, we have a Government. It took just over two months to arrange ourselves and get used to this new way of doing things: old rivals coming together, political consensus as the holy grail and Independents ruling the roost.
The fairest way is to give the new administration a fair chance. The Government was matched up in Lisdoonvarna. Now the plain people and the populist commentators are giving out about how long it took to agree the dowry. It was as if all Micheál, Enda and the Endies had to do was sit down at the breakfast and decide who will feed the cat.
