Reply To: Cinema in Parnell Street
I remember Parnell Street west was little more that one huge surface level car park a few years ago after the Corpo demolished the whole street for road widening…hence the dual carriageway that exists there now which was to run straight through to meet North King Street. It is rather odd to see a building that was supposed to rejuvenate the street now faces the same fate……….but at least it won’t be left with a gaping hole as like last time. Shooters bar or what ever it’s called is to get the chop too………but overall I suppose it is good to see this street somewhat rejuvenated………especially with the development across the road at Pennies near completion…..and all the buildings are of a substantial height.
Gives the street named after one of Irelands greatest patriots a bit of dignity which it seriously lacked.
