The very idea is spine-tingling!
The Abbey’s definitely in storage – I think a private individual has/had it but with a public interest in mind.
Remember when Nelson’s head was nicked by students from a Corpo yard – surely there must be a couple of yards like that with lots of goodies. Where did all the city’s small gas lamposts go – I know I asked it before, and naturally they were all replaced with good reason, but did they all just go into landfill or are some still kicking about? We didn’t have to melt anything down for the War like the UK.
And Iarnrod Eireann must have a bucket load of similar things too.
There must be loads of railings and bits of balustrades and stuff somewhere that once graced the city streets – perhaps it’s all the content that now graces the country’s salvage yards…
