Happy Christmas all and thanks for providing the forum which has seen some pretty unique discussions this year.

Hopefully 2010 will see practices building capacity, graduates staying at home in their chosen career path and the doom and gloom brigade proven wrong.

Poor aul Santy. Multiple angular roofs are one thing, the absence of chimneys is another conundrum entirely...

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year everyone.

A little low on the Christmas pictures this year, but it is appropriate that the capital's flagship restoration of 2009 should feature I think. As has been demonstrated, modernity doesn't appear to have much affinity with this time of year.

It started snowing coming up to midnight tonight ... perfect timing. Big crowd at Christchurch for ringing in the New Year.

Aha, Devin caught outta his tree at last :p

Love the grittiness of the shots. This is rather grand and exciting isn't it?

If not quite the full story...

Again, this highlights in such very stark terms Dublin's lack of ceremonial civic space and a central, if not two or three, congregation points. Obvious planning virtues aside, in purely social terms, it is interesting to observe how people gravitate towards the environs of Christ Church as a natural gathering point (if a medieval bell tower also aiding matters on this particular occasion).

If there was to be a singular outcome of the public realm brief of the new Development Plan over the course of the next five years, it must surely be the creation of two civic spaces at College Green and Christchurch Place (which incidentally should simply be renamed Christ Church - enough of that 1970s anonymity). Such a development would simply transform the image of the city. Alas, the practicalities of such an aspiration are another matter entirely.

I had to put some pre-emptive pictures on just in case Grahamh was there and decided to put 65 pictures on :D
