Re: Re: Developments in Cork
The red paving works well on French Church St. and Carey’s Lane, given they’re a much smaller area.
For such a large paved area as Patrick St., I think dark mono-tone paving would be very dull and drab. The use of a mixture of paving stones is one of the things I really like about the street renewal, it adds texture to what would otherwise be a large, bland space.
Hear hear. Look, its a question of personal tastes so no one is right and no one is wrong but I personally think the new St Patrick St is the nicest street in Ireland by a distance. It is anything but cheap looking.
Agree re criticism (esp of tarmac) of Oliver Plunkett st though.
