Online Public Meeting On Navan Rail Line “New Viability Assessment”

Chair of the Meath On Track Campaign & Meath West TD Peadar Tóibín has announced an Online Public Meeting by the Meath On Track Campaign for the 15th of December to keep the pressure on and to discuss the “new viability assessment” of the Navan Rail Line.

An Teachta Tóibín:

“The announcement by the National Transport Authority of a “New Viability Assessment” into the Navan Rail Line is a welcome, but overdue, announcement. However, now is not the time to take the foot off the gas. We need to ramp up the pressure as part of the Meath On Track campaign to send a clear message to the NTA: Meath deserves and needs a fit for purpose rail line. The first step in putting the pressure on the NTA is to hold a public meeting online to discuss the announcement and what we can do to keep the pressure on to get the Rail Line extension to Navan.”

“I have already been in touch with the NTA, to request and organise a meeting between myself as Chair of the Meath On Track Campaign and the consultant chosen to carry out the viability assessment. Furthermore, we in Meath On Track, will be making submission to the NTA’s assessment consultants and we will be asking as many people, businesses and communities as possible to do so as well. Getting to this point is testament to the powerful work done so far, let’s finish this out and finally get Meath On Track!”

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
