Suas is Rejected

(Suas is Gaelic for up)
The cable car system (already nicknamed favorably by locals as Suas)which was to be erected above the river Liffey, from O'Connell Street to Heuston Railway station was rejected by our short sighted planners, who said it would be of no benefit to our infrastructural needs.
Muppets! It was never meant to be of benefit to "infrastructural needs" it was supposed to be a tourist attraction to rival the "London Eye" carrying them 80metres above the iconic river with spectacular views over the city.
The fact it doubled up as a transport system for locals was just an added bonus.
The city planners are fast becoming my least favorite statutory body
