Reply To: Dublin’s sprawl threatens to choke the nation
I understand that. It’s just that I can’t see where this sprawl is. I know Dublin is a fairly big city in relative terms.
If you compare it with UK cities such as Liverpool, Sheffield and Leeds for instance it’s bigger. It’s about twice the size of Belfast and Edinburgh and similar in size to Glasgow. Whenever, I’ve been over I’ve felt the buzz of something big. However, a few of us decided to go to Kilkenny and got the train from Euston. After 5 minutes on the train, we were surrounded by fields. It just surprised me especially when you compare it the bustling feel in the city.
Does this sprawl perhaps come in “pockets” of urbanisation?
