The overgrown trees are the culprit here
Sorry StephenC,but them Trees are in the clear on the main charge anyway.
It`s a rather simpler and more fundamental issue of DCC`s long running aversion to providing a reasonable level of street lighting on Westmoreland Street.
Currently the Westin Hotel provides much of the illumination at the southern end whether by accident or design.
Now whilst those darn trees do have a negative effect on the Light,but when there`s hardly any of it in the first place then it`s a moot point.
I did notice,however a recent burst of new street lighting installation along the Drumcondra Road adjacent to His Grace`s Palace....rather unusually this was accompanied by a burst of long overdue tree pruning...I wonder how they managed to integrate those duties.....
Another fine example of the benefits of pruning one`s bush (:eek:) can be seen as we speak along Cowper Road by Milltown Golf Club,where for the first time in years the light can shine down upon the strollers....!
Prune for Ireland I say !!!
