Re: Re: Dublin Historic Stone Paving disbelief
Certainly more unity is required, though to be honest I’m surprised they even bothered to go with white granite kerbs of the same broad width – they’re not particularly common in the city on that scale, so at least they went to the effort.
But if they’re aware that they need kerbs of that width on the street, they they also know damn well that it’s antique granite that should be used along here, and that’s just presuming it wasn’t the latter they were replacing!
At least the white granite looks well, but it’s absolutely no excuse for a disjoined paving scheme, nor the replacement of priceless rust-tinged Irish kerbstones.
As an aside, I was looking at those very concrete lampposts on Leeson St the other day, wondering how long they’ll last. Will we give them a year to be replaced with silver repro muck?
