I suppose this building is really to large to sweep away - it's massive to the rear.
Walked down the street today at lunchtime to Connolly - there were no less than 5 pools of vomit on the ground on the stretch between Bachelors Walk and Henry St.
Two were on the pavements edge, one was at the base of a rubbish bin (which of course was missed, hence it ran all down the side to the ground) and one, more sophisticated puker decided to adorn the base of a pilaster of the GPO - on both sides - creating a striking symmetrical composition.
The place was coated rubbish - moreso than usual - my feet stuck to the ground the whole way - and the place stank to high heaven of vomit, urine and the joys of lunchtime at Supermacs.
I was on the verge of throwing up myself.
The paving on this stretch is the worst paving I have ever seen in any town or city in the world.
The slabs are cracked and subsiding, are cheap concrete, unbeliveably incredibly dirty - some are literally black in colour - the kerbstones are subsiding, every slab is coated in chewing gum in a variety of shades, hundreds of gaps are filled with tarmac, 'juice' is leaking out of every bin staining the surrounding area, and of course litter litter litter.
What really annoys me is that people think this is all part of the works for Luas or the repaving, hence letting the CC off the hook - this place has been like this for the past 10 years!
There is nothing in this city that the CC can be blamed more for than the state of the paving on this street - so simple to resolve - so cheap to resolve.
And this is the main street - it is just unbeliveable the state of this paving, imagine Trafalgar Square or Oxford St like this, it should have been fixed years ago.
I was mortified passing all of the German and French couples on their Autumn weekend breaks.
