Reply To: good article on temple bar as it now is
I lived in Temple Bar for two and a half years and by the end, i found it an unlivable place to be in. Too many nights spent stepping over fights, vomits, bins and rubbish eventually force you to move out. I don’t think Frank is being an ould lad. It doesn’t matter what age you are – it has become an impossible place to live.
He’s also right that it has actually significantly deteriorated this year. His points about the level of graffiti and repair of some of the main buildings are completely accurate. Graffiti, which plagues much nicer cities like Paris, is now going to turn Dublin into a complete and utter mess and seems to be a relatively new or returning phenomenon.
