You would think, given the amount of vitriol that has been directed towards SISK and their slow, slow pimping of our harbour that when – after eight years of headaches and heartache – there was some good news for Greystones, they would let people know about it?
And yet, despite regular requests from the Greystones Guide to be informed of when the hoarding would finally start to come down on our new public square down at the harbour, not a word was sent.
A direct inquiry earlier today to Cllr Derek Mitchell – who has been the poster boy for the SISK development from the start – came with the following reply…
Not sure. Some rumor something at 4 today but i don’t know.
That rumour had blossomed into something a little more definite an hour later, when Mitchell joined fellow Fine Gael Councillor Grainne McLoughlin and good ol’ SISK for the first official removal of that ugly hoarding down at the harbour.
The mind boggles at the decision not to let the good people of Greystones know about this long, long, long-overdue happy development.
We reckon such sly shenanigans is all down to putting politics (and profit) before people – an old Fine Gael trademark, some would argue.
Here’s hoping these let the rest of us know about their next move before it happens. Or do the people of Greystones not actually figure in all these grand, money-spinning plans…?
