A city council and and a county council for a few thousand people. Duplication on a grand scale and jobs for the cronies. This country will never be anything with this nonsense everywhere.

    @wacker macker: I totally agree. One council is sufficient, with about max. 20 councillors

    @Pat O’Looney: One council per province would be enough if everyone did their job.

    @wacker macker: when they try to streamline the process, for instance when it was proposed that the twin Riverside towns of monksland (Roscommon) and Athlone (westmeath) would be managed as a unit, there was a political storm of epic proportions.
    Government would happily reduce the Admin costs in local authorities, but locally elected councillors would immediately whip up the ‘county jersey’ nonsense.
