Re: Re: hawkins house
At what stage did Hawkin’s House come into State ownershp? I’d be interested to know how the state came to possess such a cruddy building.
There is a piece on the finale of the Theatre Royal in Summer 1962, and another paragraph in the Irishman’s diary (August 1962) about the demolition .
It was very sad. What a mistake it was to let that happen.
I was looking at pictures of Hawkins Street with the Theatre Royal, and it is hard to imagine that the current decrepit dingy street was once so beautiful, lively and pleasant.
I really hope that Hawkin’s House is demolished and replaced by something that will bring some life and beauty back to Hawkins street.
