Correct me if I am wrong but surely all of the so-called “Civic Space” is really their property.
I think the railings are an unfortunate necessity of city centre (especially Temple Bar!) life. Hands up who actually would like to have to power-wash down their front doorstep of all sorts of crap (literally) every morning.
But at least the whole plaza was not closed off and some thought was put into keeping the area as a space where people can meet/congregate.
We probably should be thankful!
