Order of Business
I totally understand the Cathaoirleach’s desire to hold on to Ballaghdereen in Mayo, from a football point of view but we are all very concerned at this infringement by one county on another, or by their aggrandisement. I too would like to hear from the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Deputy Kelly, on this matter. The Leader has some experience of it between Waterford and Kilkenny. There are other proposals in other parts of the country. It is not desirable and it would be interesting to hear the Minister outline what rationale, if any, is behind it. Let our views be heard. There should be no final decisions by anybody on any of this.
