    RTE Prime Time is discussing whether there is a "recovery gap" between urban and rural Ireland.

    As the supposed recovery is pretty well invisible apart from in news stories, I'm not sure how they will be able to tell.

    Colm McCarthy on, but he is not an expert on rural issues. Was there none available? There isn't one on the panel. Sorry Colm, but when some families can't run one car, saying it is ok to drive 30 miles to a shop because of all the 2 car families is off the mark.

    Impressionistic stuff and opinion. Not a relevant statistic between them.

    The rural reps have just come in from the ploughing and are in full-on marketing mode

    The head of the Planning Institute is saying that 25% of the population lives in rural one off houses and that these houses must be "reoriented into urban areas"

    I wonder does she know what she means by that.

    Ends banging the rural recovery drum at the FG ****-up in Mayo


    After the economic devastation Fianna Fáil wreaked upon rural Ireland, there are better times ahead.
    Fine Gael and Labour, in partnership with the people, will ensure that 2015 becomes the year of rural recovery.

    A time when jobs and investment flow in greater numbers into all parts of Ireland.

    But our job is far from over. Not until we create the conditions for our sons and daughters to return from afar.

    We must continue the course, build on our successes, and secure recovery for our people.

    Thank you.

    No economic development plan to expand to the rest of the country. Lets just let dublin grow and grow and eat up kildare, wickla and meath. People love to complain about rural one of housing but the real problem is sprawling housing estates.

    Dublin occupies the area of greater barcelona but has less than a quarter of the population.

    A real spatial development plan is quickly needed but then short-termist profit-motivated hyper-capitalism never really did that very well.

    sigh

    Culture Minister Josepha Madigan, a rising star within Fine Gael, wants lower rates of property tax in affluent areas like her own constituency in south Dublin when the LPT review is completed by the Government.
