Heading east, going back towards the city-centre, tourists and other visitors can continue to soak up the athmosphere. These well-maintained gems are all on the south side of Thomas St. Who owns them?
It would appear that the only properties along this stretch that are maintained to any kind of standard are a bar and a hostel, the bar in pink can be seen in the first photo, while the yellow hostel stands between the buildings shown in the last two snaps.
These are also on the south side of Thomas St, east of St Catherines. Again either poorly maintained/ being let go -
Continuing east, beside NCAD, on the north side of Thomas St are these properties:
While almost adjacent, at the junction with Meath St is this building - now in scaffolding for by my estimate for almost 10 years (I am open to correction if wrong):
A closer view of the side of the scaffolding shows this; maybe the real intention is revealed?
Finally - and again continuing east - are these at the corner with Vicar St. Again who is the owner - might it be Harry Crosbie given his Vicar St venue interests? Any info would be appreciated. In any case I note yet another inappropriate billboard adverising Guinness; knowingly or not they thru their images are really running the risk of becoming synonymous with dereliction in this area. A real pity given that in the recent past (as already noted by other posters) they were once notable for maintaining their holdings to a template standard
