UL is a training facility NOT a sports campus for hosting events.
This thread is actually about the politics behind the built environment, or more to the point who do you trust with it.
It certainly has nothing to do with stadiums at edge city that weren’t built.
You are right that UL is not a stadium but Thomond Park and The Gaelic grounds are, as is Croke Park, as is Landsdowne Rd.
You have listed Government Buildings, the view from Merrion St is damaged by the Dept of Agriculture building on Kildare St.
Ardnacrusha opened in the 1920’s
Temple Bar was a disaster when started and was basically a collection of sites assembled for demolition. It is now basically a haven for stag parties and little else.
The M50 at Carrickmines Castle is exactly what this question is about, would another minister sign off on a scheme to destroy a medievel castle when other credible routes existed?
