Re: Re: Dublin Historic Stone Paving disbelief
I am not having a go at Fas â€“ they do a lot of good work. But, as Greg said earlier, thatâ€™s the metaphor which sums it up best: the Fas trainees being let loose unsupervised on the valuable antique pavments.
This is bloody awful. You’d think we’d have come further. Pointing is supposed to be secondary to stonework.
I suspect that that battle is lost. I agree it’s awful.
This lunchtime I took the attached pics (camera phone) – unbelievably they show repointing of the main entrance steps to Powerscourt Town House.
Maybe these are in private ownership – but the destruction wrought in public areas (in the name of DCC) is completely inexcusable.
