Cable Car to the Hellfire Club - 20/10
Hello,

There is a meeting being held in the Yellow House Pub in Rathfarnham in Dublin 14 tomorrow night at 8 pm about some proposed "redevelopments" in and around the Hellfire Club/Montpelier Hill in the Dublin Mountains. Apparently, South Dublin County Council and Coillta are proposing to build a Cable-Car from Tallaght to the Hellfire Club. Sadly, I'm not joking. There's also some plan about a "treetop walkway" from the Hellfire to Massey's Wood.

Its billed as an "information evening" and is being held by Fine Gael TD Colm Brophy. I'm no fan of his or his party but there is scant information available about this and best not shoot the messenger etc.

I'm sure its no more than a PR exercise to get his mush on posters and to gauge the reaction of people to the ideas and then decide whether he's for it or agin' it.

I've included a link to an article The Echo did on it and to Mr Brophy's facebook page about it.

I've nothing against yodeling or goat-herders, but cable cars from Tallaght to the Hellfire Club which you can walk at an easy pace in no time at all? I thought we were supposed to be all about slimming down as a Nation and encouraging people to exercise and be more healthy? Not lurryin' lads up the gentle hills of South Dublin in cable cars so they can hurl cans out the windows and skull as many motorists, sheep and deer as possible on the way up the Tallaght Alps!

Leave it in the flaming hands of the Devil-worshipers and not the Swiss-impersonating gentry.
