I noted these two plaques when in Dingle recently.
I did pause to wonder if they would be likely to be erected now – has society’s opinion and attitude to politicians changed to the extent that there is a preference to be disassociated rather than connected to all politicians – not just those whose actions are not complimented in Tribunal findings.
Having reflected on this, I suspect that politicians are still regularly opening this and that and having their names engraved on a very regular basis. I find this disappointing.
