Is that too much to ask?
If the state of Cork is anything to go by, odds-on we're going to need a pretty robust flood defence strategy in the coming decades [whether it's all to do with mankind leaving his carbon footprints all over the place, or not] and not to combine future flood defences with a comprehensive urban plan would seem to be folly of a scale we haven't attempted before, . . . and we're pretty good at folly.
Deeeeeeeefinitely, the Liffy NEEDS flood defences...
And that is of course an architectural opportunity too!
