Re: Re: Bray Town Centre
This is the perfect example of our times being in thrall to the mighty Euro. Things that are-in effect-glorified shopping centres are touted as “Town Centres”. A town to me is a mixture of the commercial AND the civic. Courthouses, town halls, libraries, post offices,museums, theatres,in short a public realm are what -or at least, part of-what constitutes a town. Not just shops, more shops and yet more shops. But we live in a world that thinks that Woodies,Dunnes,Tescos,off licences,Top Shop,DVD shops, etc etc are what make a town centre. And I live in a town that put a McDonalds into a fine Town hall and reduced it to a mockery.
