Speaking of pubs in the Liberties, DCC recently granted permission for demolition of the Ardee House pub, which closes the view west on Newmarket (see bottom picture). It’s been appealed by An Taisce – http://www.pleanala.ie/casenum/229648.htm. How is the area supposed to maintain what’s left of its character and sense of historic layering if we go demolishing the remaining older buildings?

Existing view looking west on Newmarket towards Chamber Street. The stone warehouses on the right form the west corner of Brabazon Place, opposite Gray’s on the east corner. The warehouses are derelict and look to be prep’d for re-development. They are 19th century replacements of the original gabled houses, but they are part of the story of the space and should be retained and worked into the redevelopment rather than bulldozed and forgotten.
