‘Mullingar has been airbrushed off Irish map by IDA’


When local Mullingar author Jack Kiernan went from his home at Great Oaks to Dublin, to picket the IDA headquarters, he did so because he is seriously annoyed by what he perceives and believes to be an anti-Mullingar attitude prevailing in official circles, particularly including downgrading and ignoring by the IDA.

Mr. Kiernan, determined to obtain a meeting with the IDA to ask them basic questions about their approach to getting any new factories or projects for Mullingar, was finally informed that the IDA would meet him, but the responses he describes having received, when he met them, are worrying, from the viewpoint of any politician or anyone interested in Mullingar’s future prospects.
