I afraid your wrong on both counts. Firstly the NRA could easily have chosen one of many alternative routes that didn't happen to rip through the heart of the tara complex(and surely the pleasure of visiting such a place will be diminished by the roar of traffic in the back-ground, not to mention traffic fumes etc). As an aside the NRA might like to explain why Irelands motorways are the most expensive in Europe - another case of TAx-payers being wasted!!.
Secondly the Corrib gas project has been given the go-ahead by Mayo Co. Co. for the second time subject to certain conditions - some of which Shell have had the brass neck to challenge(true to form I suppose since the project would have provided many more long term jobs and been envrinonmentally less destructive if it had been constructed off-shore, but thats another story).
As regards progress - its not as if were a third world country or ever where- definatly not now. So a bit of thought and proper planning involving the rigourous investigation of alternatives wouldn't go amiss!!!
