Define Irony…

This weekend, just gone, saw my home city of Waterford host a very prestigious meeting of the European environment ministers at WIT. It was great to see the city and indeed the Institute host such an event. However, whilst driving around the city for the last few days I have been frequently brought to a halt at roundabouts and junctions by a cavalcade of police motor bikes forming a channel for a fleet of huge 2.0l + Audi A8s with a single minister per car. I hope the irony of environment ministers choosing to travel in such a fashion wasn’t lost on others…
