Reply To: Diarmuid Gavin
Would be great if any of the Irish city and town councils employed Diarmuid Gavin to design some public parks around the country. His modern style of gardening, using the whole gamut of native and exotic planting, chrome, timber, water, sculpture, lighting etc….would be a breath of fresh air especially in more modern urban housing, appartment and office schemes, and the Dublin docklands too of course. Go on Peter Coyne of the DDDA get him on board to design a much needed park for the people down the docks. His TV popularity would be a great USP (unique seling point) too, but I bet ye’d rather settle for Gerry Daly.
He could be our own modern Irish version of a Capability Brown.
