Re: Re: Decentralisation and the Customs House
Graham, isn’t that the way things are in Ireland. We can never do things properly.
I don’t suppose refurbishing it to its Gandonian original would be on the cards…alas.
In my opinion, it’d be a better location for the National Library than the cramped one they’re using at the minute..but they won’t move.
Personally, I think the building is too grand in appearance and in pedigree to be used as a tourist office. An architectural museum would be a fine thing for it.
And given the size of the place, there would surely be space for a museum on the Irish diaspora too.
On a related matter, will the Loop Line ever come down?
There were plans in recent years to rebuild it, to make it more transparent.
