Sorry to refresh a stale thread, but I still feel angry about this. Does anyone know if the council is going to compel the fumble in a greasy till merchant to rebuild it?

Looks like the "greasy till merchant" wants to knock it completely as exempted development

Is it worthwhile writing to the local councillors asking them to intervene?

If Bord Pleanala approve demolition I'll be the first to lead a mob with flaming torches down to Marlborough St.

Councillors cannot intervene in an ABP deliberation, but should be instructing the City Manager to take all steps to prevent further damage and prosectution of the individuals responsible.

Thanks for the feedback, I will prepare a considered submission to the local reps.

Sorry to drag this up but the place has been of interest to me lately. Does this mean that it won't be knocked?

I took a look around there yesterday and got some pictures of what it's like now.

Yes, it is in fairly good shape. It should not take too much effort to put it back the way it was.

With its proximity to Croker I'm gobsmacked that a leisure use of the existing was never the favoured option if not the only viable option. If this were used as a mezz level Gym and a ground floor bar it would be an utter goldmine and some element of planning gain could be realised by giving use of a section of the bar for day time community events to get the very vocal local residents on side.

Sounds like bad news.

It was not, by any chance, on a bank holiday?
