It just so happened that on the day that it was announced that there would be another cull of medical cards from the sick and vulnerable, I was reminded once again that there is still money in this country. That the Government can find money for some projects.
My daughter had to attend a gymnastics judging course in Blanchardstown at the National Sports Campus. Neither of us had ever heard of it. Google Maps told us it was near the National Aquatic Centre, but it isn't on a bus route, so I piled the kids in the car and we headed out in the rush hour traffic to get there for 6pm.
Now I'm all in favour of sport, but did this really need to be built at a time when so many people are suffering so badly?
