I tend to agree with you – the journal ‘Irish Architect’ [which seems to have died] could best be described as fairly sychophantic but then again there is a very small circle of architects doing anything interesting and mainly in or around Dublin so I suppose you review one building harshly, they’ll all stick together 🙂
The important thing is with the death of the ‘Irish Architect’, the only publishing outlet on Irish architecture is Frank McDonald’s weekly article in The Irish Times. If I could persuade architects to free up more information for here, i would love to extend the OnSite Ireland section into a proper online journal with regular issues – but getting information can best be described as getting blood out of a stone and I have a day job which prevents me from spending all day chasing them for information. However if any architects reading these want to send me some stuff on their latest work opr even short written articles, I’ll publish them on this website.
