Reply To: Irish say no to PVC windows
On Connaught Street, another fine building (left), forming part of a classic Irish-town streetscape (right), also has a demolition application.
Two doors down from it, a chemists has been PVCâ€™d since last time I was there.
A former Connaught Street gem, the Shamrock Bar, has fallen into dereliction.
While these buildings (top left & right) at the corner of Connaught Street and Patrick Street have been completely demolished.
I suppose the town council are too preoccupied with their grand Civic Centre and Town Centre plan on the more prosperous Westmeath side of the town to worry about whatâ€™s going on on the other side of the Shannon, hence a valuable surviving historic urban area like Connaught Street is going to the dogs.
