Re: Pointless Gimmick or….
Nonsense – No one can doubt the importance of tourists to cities these days nor the leisure aspect of the city centre for the citizens of that city but this is nonsense. To erect would be to shoot ourselves in the foot – the intrusion of a private Disneyfied carbuncle of zero utilitarian benefit for the city and defacing the reinvigorated Liffey quays / campshire. No problems with sending it out and about in the docks but not in the historic core – indeed might be quite supportive in the docks area if there was some transport benefit. A gimmic!!!!!!!!!! Shane
