Bertie Ahern is talking out of both sides of his mouth - Doolan

18 April, 2005


Sinn Féin Representative for Dublin South East, Councillor Daithì Doolan has today slammed yesterday's comments by An Taoiseach Bertie Ahern as, Bertie doing what Bertie does best - talking out of both sides of his mouth and clarifying nothing."

"I support the development of a National Stadium, but as a public representative I fully understand local concerns. Yesterday's comments by An Taoiseach Bertie Ahern was an example of Bertie doing what Bertie does best - talking out of both sides of his mouth and clarifying nothing. His comments do nothing to clarify the situation. In fact they will only serve to complicate the issue. The question I would put to Bertie Ahern is, does

he or does he not support the development?

"Residents have raised a number of concerns including traffic, public order and access to public land. If the development goes ahead these need to be tackled at local level and the Taoiseach's intervention simply undermines our role. He would be better off saying nothing rather confusing the issue."ENDS
