Re: Re: Dublin Street Lighting
En Route to An TrÃ¡ in the heat last week, I noticed a new historic-style cast iron lamp scheme has been installed along the Clontarf seafront (the one where, bizarrely, you are not allowed to cycle). As a historic style, the design of the lamp is actually quite good and it appears to be well cast.
However it is quite a full-blooded Victorian design, and Iâ€™m not sure if it was the right thing to put here, beside the various concrete shelters along the seafront, all of which are strongly of 20th century â€˜international styleâ€™ in design (see pictures).
Iâ€™m not saying it was the wrong thing to do, but there should have been some consultation for something like this, to see what kind of a consensus there would be about the design of a new lamp scheme in this location. I donâ€™t remember hearing a thing about it â€¦.
