    Angry Sligo to be punished for rejecting FF?

    Sligo-North Leitrim has no FF TDs but, instead of being rewarded, it is being punished by the Coalition.

    First cancer services were moved to Galway, 100 miles away, despite promises to the contrary by Gilbore, Burton etc.

    Now, we have the impending transfer of teacher training from St Angela's College to NUI Galway. Once, teacher training goes the rest of the college's services will follow.

    Apart from FF's opportunist Marc MacSharry, there has not been a word from our politicians. Are they going to roll over again?

    The country has been 'rewarded'. We have St Enda and company don't we??

    Very true, it seems the OP is a supporter of parish pump politics.

    Fianna Fail were a bit like The Late Late Show. One for every constituency in the country. No wonder we're bankrupt.

    So in fact, you are lauding the government for implementing policy without regard for local political concerns or the next election.
