mate it beggars belief to me that after ten ears of blushing excess our country hasn't manages to get it's city centres in order. you look at Cork; 1995; what needs obviously to be done? Cornmarket, Parnell Place, Grand Parade, Patrick's, Oliver's, South Mall. those 6, you're set, they're the main big wide thoroughfares that people will realistically linger on and rate the city on. what did we do? 3 of six, where 6 of 6 could have been done in a sixth of the time when we were plush. I mean i don't even know what to say, i've not even mentioned Limerick or Galway, and if you come at it with some 'Dublin is our greatest city' shit, there's no-one visits Dublin 'cept stag nights and descendants. to invest in your country you invest in all of your country, not the bits you live in. Green country, we're becoming a land of suburbs of Dublin, and Dublin is the city of excess-without-the-glamour go-there-to-wreck-the-place of Europe. whatever, the rant came from the fact that cornmarket st isn't developed yet. mate i just feel like the country is run out of dublin, for dublin, and anyone who cribs is cause for ridicule.
