Road closures . . . Pension cuts . . . TD resignations

Once again, we have had a few weeks of intermittent snow and our country seems to have ground to a halt. The Irish economy is in such a precarious state that we cannot afford our transport system to shut down every time some snow falls.

The head of the NRA claims that the recent weather conditions are unprecedented -- if his memory does not stretch back to January 2010, perhaps he is not the man for the job.

The solution to keeping our roads open is not that complicated -- you need salt, grit, a warehouse to store them in and competent people appointed to the NRA and local authorities.
