On some subjects children actually make more sense than adults. Street naming would be one of them. They are unlikely to want to name a street after some long dead general or anyone else with a sanitised political history. Mainly because in their innocence they probably haven't heard of any of them yet.Children are fúcking everywhere as it is; what's wrong with that rarest of rare things, a country run by adults?
They'd come up with things they like. Which would be funny. 'Skateboard Street'. 'Streety MccStreetface'. I'd love read a list of suggestions by Irish kids of primary school age as I suspect the logic would be hilarious and quite imaginative.
How many Irish kids know anything at all about Westmoreland except maybe that it is a street in Dublin? Can't do much harm either introducing them to the Citizen's Assembly process.
A lot of people would be concerned about raising kids' awareness of politics and the process so this seems like a harmless and interesting way to do that too.
