Here’s the concluding paragraph of a piece I wrote for the Irish Times on 2 July 2005. The full article is at the link below

Something has to happen to the Dún Laoghaire Baths. Undoubtedly, the site should be developed, but at a modest scale. The opportunity to provide a building that respects the scale and grain of town should not be squandered. The current proposal should be put to one side. The Council should draw up various options for the site, all options should be examined, and indicative costs should be provided. The public should then be asked for their views prior to any decision being made. Proper planning is crucial, and there is only one opportunity to get it right.

I’d welcome any further thoughts on the issue,
