In your opinion is the suggested cable car system along the river Liffey in Dublin a pointless gimmick that we don’t need or a good example or how imagination can make Dublin a better place to live?

Plan for cable car attraction on Liffey
The Irish Times

A private consortium is proposing to develop a cable car service along the Liffey Quays in Dublin, running between Heuston Station and Docklands. The cable cars would transport sightseers at heights approaching 80 metres (264ft) above the river from the Guinness Brewery near Heuston to a terminal located near the planned national conference centre at Spencer Dock. Aimed primarily at the tourism market, the cable cars would give people a birds-eye view of many of Dublin’s landmarks, including the Custom House, the Four Courts, St James’ Gate Brewery and the National Museum at Collins Barracks. Each of the four cable cars would have capacity for 25 people and the duration of a trip in either direction would be around 20 minutes.
