Principal blasts Keating leaflet - Dublin Gazette Newspapers - Dublin News, Sport and Lifestyle
Welcome to Derek Keating.net
deputy keating recently sent around a flier, as most politicians do, trumpeting the things they have achieved for the parish pump. in this flier, he stated that he had contributed to getting the local educate together an expansion.
thankfully for the greater populace, the school principal is a man of principles and wrote an open letter in which he lambasted deputy keating: “You never once contacted our school, Griffeen Valley, in relation to our forthcoming school extension,” says O’Dulaing’s letter.
“Neither did anybody from our board of management or staff contact you or seek your assistance in relation to the extension. You had absolutely nothing to do with this development, and yet you distribute a leaflet in the Lucan area claiming to have ‘initiated, led and delivered’ this extension.
“This is nothing but gross cynical opportunism on your behalf, which I find objectionable and depressing.”
and delivering a lovely coupe de grace with this line “I recall, Derek, that you shook your head in shame when parents outlined to you the manner in which the devastating cuts you had voted for were having on the lives of their children. Neither the school, nor those parents, heard from you after that meeting.Can I respectfully remind you that you have voted for every single cutback that you and your colleagues in Fine Gael and Labour have put through [the Dail]?
hopefully more people of Mr O'Dualaing's calibre are out there to call these chancers to account when they claim credit for something they have had no hand or part in an indeed have voted against in the dail
