So they want to give more power to local government to stop opening of new off licences?
Ok, what about this scenario? A businessman wants to open a new off licence let’s say I don’t know, in Kilgarvin in Co Kerry. One of the folks that will get to decide weather he can open it or not would be Danny Healy Rae. The same Healy Rae’s that would be in competition for business should the new premises open.
Conflict of interest much?
This scenario would be repeated all over the country.

The government could be looking at regulating the market.

    But when Dublin councillors voted against outsourcing bins to an offshore company who were proven to have ripped off Irish Rail …. John Tierney went ahead anyway.

    Councillors have no power. All spin.
