Then people have the gall to criticise the government for partial funding of Croke Park which is a place where more people will want to go to. And then say it is great that the Government is funding the Abbey where few outside the wealthy elite will go. Now I have no problem with the wealthy elite. But why should I and the majority of the nation with no interest in people dancing in front of post offices pay for what they can well afford themselves? Are am I just a heathen?

Is this what our Taxes are spent on.
People keep going on about how little we spend on the arts. Then I watch the view and watch people dance in front of a post office. Which is supposed to be symbolic of "How Irish people dance". Maybe I am missing the point but I have never seen anyone dance or do anything remotely like dancing outside a post office in my life. This short film ~5 minutes That involved about 2 camera angles. Had 4 Assistant directors. Four. The Godfather had 3. I wouldn't even try to describe the utter crap that followed it. Sufficed to say it "had a non-linear narrative" Fine Gael are going on about the Government wasting money in the health service. Maybe they should be saying the government is wasting money on the Arts council. Why are the tax payers subsidizing the Arts to facilitate dinner conversation clap trap in pseudo-intellectual upper-class.
