Agreed - also the way grave stones form a quasi pavement on the west side; is it because the slabs were belonging to Protestants? Should never ever have been allowed happen.
Re skate boarding, more facilities should be provided. We tolerate living in a city where authorities paid out of our taxes are too much full of a no-can-do mentality, when if it wre the private sector, the reverse can be true.
Merchants and businesses around here, and the city centre in general, are in favour of such facilities being provided for kids, provided they are properly planned.
Instead of which such facilities, that give youngsters other options than wasting their time getting stoned, are not provided - and instead of which 200 metres up from here, the Dept of Justice is trying to illegally develop a 15,000 sq ft probation facility for "persistent offenders" from the "greater Dublin area" (see thread in Dublin forum). I also note the announcement of closure of the swimming pool on nearby SeÃ¡n MacDermot Street
So instead of sports facilities for kids, such as skate-boarding ramps, we get a no-can-do attitude from tossers paid for out of our taxes... Just remember the city manager is on â‚¬210k p.a. + bonuses & expenses, reflecting the telephone figure salaries that many of the senior execs are on - many of whom i.m.o. are out-of-touch with the needs of the real economy, unaccountable, and all too often incompetent.
