To my mind, fishing from this platform can only spell one thing: these guys are out to get ducks. Crispy Duck in the Chinese restaurant tonight. You have three or four inches of water – so it isn’t worth fishing there anyway. They are putting bread on a hook – that goes into a river. You can imagine the swans, the ducks and the cygnets all come over towards them.

Limerick’s Joe Crowley, who is standing in City North at next year’s local election for Fianna Fáil, speaking after he saw three Chinese men with fishing rods at the platform of the shallow Westfields Wetlands, off the North Circular Road last week.  

Mr Crowley since claimed he didn’t make the comment
