NAAS is my nearest largish town, so naturally I rejoice that the Kerry Group is going to create 1,300 jobs there. But even the best news can be destroyed by stupidity: what bone-headed nonsense might follow in an area where misgovernment of some kind has been a feature for the past half decade?

Some 50pc of the retail outlets in Naas are now shuttered. The once legendary Superquinn is gone. Restaurants open, struggle and too often fold: this in a town which David McWilliams called the jewelled buckle in the gold belt around Leinster.

Now it is more like a brass knuckleduster across the nose of the adventurous and the enterprising.
