Shopping Centre’s are notoriously transient in their style and appeal – when the ILAC was built it was seen as a beautiful addition to the city….well, er, and So was Stephen’s Green…em…and Jervis is starting to become out of date…

The Abbey idea is the most appropriate and better for the long-term viability of this end of O’Connell Street. Cultural institutions don’t close down, usually are well designed, bring money to an area and contribute to the cultural life of the area. O’Connell Street needs something like the Abbey – and if it was moved to the Carlton, the result would benefit both the Street and the Theatre. O’Connell Street needs a good mix, not another shopping centre with more rubbish “high street” stores………..
