Re: Re: British Symbolism on Buildings in Ireland
The Excise bar in the IFSC has a stone set in it’s facade ‘His Majesties Excise Office 1827″ (William IV I think). It would be a bit heavy handed to go knocking 180 year old granite plinths out of buildings to affirm independence. However, one has to decide if we are retaining these things as a recognition of our past or as a little bit of ‘Pale’ colonial snobbery. Like mentioned before, I don’t see all these societies dropping the Royal out of their names ???
