Absolutely shocking that an intact Georgian house – effectively at the top of OConnell Street- can be left neglected for years, in plain sight of the whole city, until it just collapses.

Difficult to see exactly what shape its in but half of the back has gone, floors left hanging, bits of front facade falling into the street.. etc etc

Another piece of our heritage gone despite being a “Protected Structure”, and on the Derelict Sites register (whatever the f*ck that means)for years.

Despite having some of the best legislation for the protection of built heritage in Europe, DCC is unwilling or unable to take any meaningful action in even the most obvious of cases.
