side of the street as all those neglected buildings long owned by Trinity
I suppose well endowed Dublin University is so strapped for cash that painting
and or maintenance is reserved for the O'Reilly Hall or the Provost's parlour.
What is totally unacceptable is the sheer dirt of the buildings, particularly
the doors and doorcases. Of course the unrelenting traffic does not help, but
compare both sides of the street. The business premises on the other side of
the street at least try. Does Trinity not even have a pressure washer to give
the doors and windows a rinse down?. Of course Westland Row is no better, -
again on the Trinity side of the street. Here the name panels for those
unfortunate parts of the Trinity empire to be banished here are almost unreadible
with dirt or decay.
And here is my killer blow to the Trinity dons - even Belfield is better kept.

On both streets, the college is fortunate is owning two reasonably coherent streetscapes, which they have proceeded to neglect. It is indeed a pity, when the College is forever commissioning new modern work from architects, that they cannot put aside a portion of their building & maintainance budget to give these buildings a clean up.
