I think in College Green’s case the trees are ‘clutter’ … they manage to block views of trinity from dame street and the bank of ireland from grafton street …
I know they do. But they were excluded for the purposes of our report, which just looked at the need to reduce and coordinate the mess of signage, electricity boxes, flagpoles and other items in the city streets and spaces.
I think the late-19th century ‘before’ photo makes all the argument necessary for the way College Green should look now (with people of course 🙂 )
The bollards around Grattan look nice in the above photo…such a wealth of detailed street furniture. .we’ll never see the like of it again!
