Yeah I agree Dun Laoghaire can be dead in the evening although the pier and the seafront is quiet popular of a summer evening. Dun Laoghairre has a few problems, most of the South side middle class types prefer to do their socialising in places like Blackrock or Dalkey. Dun Laoghaire seems to have this reputation of being a bit rough, (read working class types)
Also Dun Laoghaire and surrounding area is old. Maybe the rezoning of the Golf course will change this. Its understandable that people are worried about traffic but I mean this is a site that isn't far (about amile?) froma town centre with all the amenities.
I see Eamon Ryan (Green party) was on Prime Time Last night telling us we are building houses in thye wroing places, futher and further away from where we nedd them. But, hello, why are the Green party oppossed to the rezoning of the Golf course when it meets most of his criteria?
