The litany of disasters that are the bus gate ‘improvement’ works at College Green continue as ever.

The latest ravishing addition of an industrial-girth galvanised steel pole right next to John Henry Foley’s exquiste representation of Henry Grattan flanked by those iconic seahorse lamp standards. My, how municipal pride in the public realm has simply collapsed in just a century.

And don’t ya just love the flourishes of tarmac. It’s these little touches that make all the difference eh? :rolleyes:

And of course the pole lends an additional column to proceedings at the Bank of Ireland. Pearse must be rolling in his grave.

And as for these yokes.

I thought I’d leave all the other (many, many) scenic delights for a decent camera.
