I hope the new Master Plan doesn't have any trees at all in O'Connell Street, because then it begins to become a great space once again. The trees in O'Connell Street are what makes it feel like a good spot to go knacker drinking at night in the cold!
you architects may not be aware of this but i heard that trees are not only usefull as 'architectural features' or 'good spots for knacker drinking' to to be placed at our astetic disgression, but they also provide us with oxygen, so we can breathe !. Should we not be trying to maximize the number of 'c02 to 02 convertors' we have on our city streets, after all these are essential to the sucessful running of any city. so why are u picking on these poor defenceless trees, what about cars surely these do alot more to detract from the beauty than a few trees. is there nothing worse than the entire street cloged with what is it 6 lane of car and trucks for most of the day.

There are a number of areas I'd like to see cars removed from the city. It seems such a contentious issue though at times - lots of auto-addicts out there it seems.
