national democracy is based on local democracy.

Happy St Patrick day. You go to a town in the USA or in Europe and you might find a town council with a mayor elected by local people dealing with local issues. In Ireland we got rid of town councils and reduced the number of councillors. Local issues need to be dealt with locally and democratically. Our national democracy needs to be based on local democracy. I hope we will use best practice abroad and in move local government in Ireland.
