NO PARKING HERE
The debate for-or-against Mourne National Park is creeping into our consciousnesses here in the North. A malodorous mist hangs over this affair. As much as Donard makes me stand up (10cc) and Commedagh is in no way divine, so also is the conclusion of this unpleasant affair a given. Any number of documents have been prepared, research effected and opinions sought; all parties interested are represented; every conceivable accountable thing stands naked to be accounted. Yet most of us are only aware of the debate thanks to a hand-painted sign near Kilcoo “eff-off National Park” A mind-bogglingly successful amalgam of random, disparate interests and parties (ie unburdened by bureaucratic nonsense) is to be made a more manageable (whoops – up comes the breakfast) entity (and the lunch …). The argument is of course that without the patronage of those better than we, Mourne will simply self-combust. Funny when things are working well how philanthropists strive to make them even better - and get their leering bakes in the paper. Has Cra a problem with opportunism? Absolutely not. Self-importance? Non. Chubby fingers cutting endless ribbons? Encore non. But within the research questionnaire resides the Devil: “Do you think paths, road and access could be improved?” How can we answer “no”? “Could facilities be improved?” Same again. “Would you like free beer, dancing girls and a lifelong supply of chocolate cake?” Well does the B S in the W? The thing is a done deal. Will it make any difference to me? Probably not. Or you? Ditto. And to the farmers and landowners who have for generations welcomed us with careful but genuine Northern hospitality, it will turn their hard-won worlds upside down and probably…., over - to a useless, endless, pointless trail of paperwork and its enthusiastic, dreary, stupid perpetrators.
