It’s no wonder the Government plans to hold the Dublin Bay South by-election during the summer. The sun will be out, hopefully, and you’ll be able to eat and drink indoors if the weather is bad. You might even be able to attend a GAA match or a horse racing meeting. Such joys.

The alternative would have been to wait until the Dáil returns in the autumn. Children going back to school, weather getting worse and the Government slashing welfare payments for people who lost their jobs due to Covid-19 restrictions.
