Dublin can be embarassing…..but it is a lot better than the condition it used to be in….acres of derelict sites, destruction of the historical fabric, inept misplaced new architecture …and all due to our ‘culchie’ country brethern TD politicians , councillors etc…..who new nothing of urban living (read it’s history)… ..and alot can be said too of the ‘Dirty Dub’ natives who knew nothing better…and still don’t. Dublin should be the jewel of the isle…..just like Paris etc….It should preserve and conserve it’s architectural heritage but welcome the new and dynamic. It should have the tallest building or whatever in the country…why not? It should have the big names of international architecture …why not? It is the capital of the country and it is incomprehensible why anyone from out side the city should resent it. After all nearly half the population ot the Republic live here….and a substantial ammount are from a provincial background. A city reflects how a people/society live….so if a city, especially a capital city is filthy, vandalised, with improper and inadequate facilities and infrastructure etc …well it says a lot then of the nation itself. We must change for the betterment of ourselves….must’nt we?
