I don’t think you can even call Archer’s Garage a replica because it is built to the existing plans – it’s no different to how it was built back in the 40s or whenever and is an original in its own right.
As said previously, it looks a hell of a lot better now than it did pre-demolition.
Some replica buildings in Dublin have worked extremely well. What about the two pink Georgians on St Stephen’s Green – the skills are there to do the rebuilding, it all depends on whether the developer is willing to put the investment in.
