It's time to reclaim our oil and gas

Dermot Looney - Letter to the Irish Independent

We are told, with regard to the economic crisis and all kinds of major cuts and tax increases, that "everything is now on the table".

Everything, it seems, except the billions worth of gas and oil off our coasts -- including the Corrib field -- the royalties for which were given away in successive Fianna Fail deals.

Isn't it time to put tens of billions of potential net worth back on the table?
