limerickman said:You made another bogus claim earlier that we had the worst recession in Europe.
You're not being logical.
You claimed earlier that this country was in a recession and that corporate sponsorship falls.
If this is the case - and it's not - why would a world class event, accounting for far larger sponsorship and funding go ahead?
If there is such a severe recession, as you claim.
Your argument is not logical.
And the facts contradict, your false claims.
You're being false and illogical.
If the interest level in his participation was higher as you claim, you would have corporate sponsors lining up to be involved in the race.
And they're not.
.....but it is logical to claim that the Tour of Ireland will be more popular than ever, even thought the race has reduced by 40%!
Your grasp of critical thinking leaves a lot to be desired.
Nice try though, mon ami.
Well I did show you a link which had the independent, International Monetary Fund (IMF), saying Ireland has the worst recession in Europe, so I don't know why you are still denying it.
I suspect the whole event this year would have been scrapped if Armstrong wasn't coming. He's likely saved it for you. You should be grateful instead of down playing everything he does. I don't know what he wrong with you people.
