Bank of Ireland building
On a separate historical note, he has a particular interest in the site of the former Irish parliament on College Green, now used by the Bank of Ireland.
“I would like to see a part of it, even, being open for public use. It’s a very big site, an acre-and-a-half altogether, so I think it’s rather unrealistic to expect to acquire the whole site for the State, but certainly the House of Lords would be a very, very attractive venue to get.”
It’s still on his agenda: “At the end of the day, people must realise that it’s in private ownership at the moment.
“It’s a very important part of the bank’s infrastructure but, at the same time, it’s an iconic building.”
