Letter to the Editor – Decentralisation & Devolution

The Editor,

Letters Page,

The Irish Times,


Dear Editor,


Tomas M Creamer ( letters 19th March) refers critically to the presence of the Head Quarters of the Civil Service and our decision making Institutions in Dublin. I agree – it is why I enthusiastically support Decentralisation. Devolution being another necessity as well. When that happens Dublin City Council might get the approximately E28-E30 million a year that Government refuses to pay on its properties in payment for Commercial rates. Of course Government still expects the same services as every other office user. Since that decision was first made, Dublin City Council has lost just under E1billion – apart altogether from the approximately E8billion net it has lost due to the abolition of Domestic rates. For Leitrim’s sake as we as Dublin’s we need a forum on the financing of Local Government just as much as we need reform of Local Government.


Yours sincerely,


Councillor Dermot Lacey
