I actually attempted to become a track layer/signaler but to no avail.
All i'm saying is my experience of I think it was booterstown station was one of broken scratched glass. It felt more like being in a shooting range than a station.
I do like the finish on the U frame supporting the cables.
Now I think of it, it reminds me of lords.
Is the white steel galv. or stainless?

Are you for real? This is not Kilbarrick it is the fulcrum between two brand new almost exclusively private housing schemes that were far from cheap thus leveraging the true meaning of the word exclusive; i.e. keeping the Hooligans you refer to out by virtue of entry cost. This post reminds me of those idiots in Beechwood Ave D6 who claimed Luas would lead to their homes being burgled regularly.

Not a QS so I have no idea on cost but it looks better than what Network Rail would do anywhere other than an important railhead such as St Pancras or Paddington which I can't wait to see finished later this year.

You are both as bad as each other. Kilbarrick is no longer a film set for The Snapper you know.

Ah jaysus. Southsiders and their spelling....

Well if Irish Rail built a connection to the airport on the most logical route; we Southsiders may actually have a reason to be able to spell it!

That said I now live North of a different river

Posh an' all as Clongriffin is.....it's a mere knive's throw from Darndale. They wanted to do the 'Snapper' there but the gear was nicked.
The great thing with the new station is the spacious foyer.
Negative equity nobs from the flats will be able to beg there out of the rain.

Its more than 2kms to Darndale; if there are issues of anti-social behaviour then CCTV should be deployed.

Why are these offensive, prejudiced rants allowed on what's meant to be a forum about architecture?

Yes, you are right. A forum primarily dedicated to architecture should not be misused in order to promote the common perception that southside-based Dubliners do not have the basic intelligence to spell properly.
They really should DO (edit) something about it.

Interesting lights outside the entrance. Very retro ray-gun style.

Do you real think it is such important settlement as to be recognised in spell check?

Sorry, I don't quite understand the question.
You'll have to spell it out for me.

Are you referring to Kilbarrack as an unimportant settlement?

I use spell check to edit; I assume most people do.

Wrong assumption; spellchecks often get it wrong (or their grammar or syntax is naff). Best spellcheck is the ocular one; problem is, you have to be able to spell...
