A lot of work has been done on Dun Laoghaire recently, main street has been repaved and looks well. A lot of the shops seem to be from the 70s, dowdy shoe shops etc. I notice the trendy steel bins are leaking a rusty colour onto the new pavements. When will they learn that they need to use bin liners?
The plaza near the car ferry looks very well, was sown there the other night and is very nicely lit, no chewing gum stains amazingly enough. The restored Victoria monument has been done to a very high standard but have mixed feelings about this one, something more forward looking and all that.
Interesting sculpture near the Pavillion, starting to grow on me and good to upset the local burghers sense of taste. Dead enough place at night time Dun Laoghaire, not much of buzz like. Don't think the different social classes that make up the place are mad about mixing. The place is probably getting old aswell as younsters can't afford to buy in the area. Wonder if they'll build on the golf club there which was sold recently. Probably some naff/posh development.
