Reply To: 32-floor building planned for Dublin
Agreed the Digital Hub was a foresighted investment. The architecture was completely appropriate for the project, a bit of total war meets the industrial area of GTA 3.
The Science (Museum) interactive centre is a compete must for this city. But not as a millstone that needs to be subsidised.
It is required as part of our industrial development policy and education system.
Every year a new report bemoans the fact that we have one of the lowest second level science participations in the OECD.
This facility should give motivation to children to persue a depper interset in Science related fields.
Therefore it will ultimately provide more science graduates for hi-level industry.
Can the country gamble on an unappropriate 32 story apartment block clearing the planning process to secure such a vital catalyst.
Harney you have had the photo get the chequebook out…..
