In a much anticipated move, TD Shane Ross has followed up his decision to resurface the Wesley hockey pitch with a move to build a fabulous €480 million state of the art Grand Prix track amidst the hills of Stepaside.
The funding application won out over bids from a charity that helps homeless burn-victim orphans out of prostitution and another charity which supplies guide dogs to paraplegic care workers blinded by their long labor hours.
”There’s no question whatever that Mr. Ross has favoured his own constituency here. This multi million dollar deal with a soulless international conglomerate is sure to bring a much needed boost to an area that’s really suffered from a little bit of snow recently.”
Locals were quick to come to deputy Ross’s support. “This town has been crying out for a Grand Prix track for over a decade. Finally someone is listening to the needs of the privileged middle class in South County Dublin.”
” We really want to encourage the next generation of F1 drivers in this country,” a spokesman for the TD said, “ and if we play our cards right we could have as many as two in the next thirty years.”
Its being touted as the new ‘joined up thinking’ characteristic of the Ireland 2040 project. Following on from the Grand Prix track, an Irish F1 team will be funded, based in Sandyford, along with a multimillion euro Dundrum canal system so the F1 oil billionaires will have somewhere to park their yachts.
”It’s inhuman to ask these people to moor their super yachts in Dun Laoghaire and be driven here in their Bentleys. “
It’s understood Deputy Ross has also applied to host the 2020 Champions League final at the boys under 14s GAA pitch in Glencairn which would require 80,000 new seats and an underground rail system to service it.
