I think that the shopping mall connecting O’Connell to Moore Street was’nt a bad concept….On refection too the idea of the Abbey moving to O’Connell Street is good as well but I think that may be it should stay put and rebuild a newer and better theatre on the original site where it is now. It could stretch down to the Liffey as was suggested too …it could contain the old original facade within a new innovative design…(ie glass atrium containing the old facade or whatever). It could be a landmark and an another addition to the wanting River Liffey.
Anyone ever see the area around here and Marlborough Street at night with all the piss, vomit, winos and unfortunates of today’s Irish society. It badly needs a clean up.
