About a year ago, the OPW re-configured the Irwin Street entrance to the RHK / IMMA, pulling the entrance back from the street and duplicationg the original single entrance to have dedicated IN and OUT gates. In general, most people agree that they did a decent job.

However, the planning application at the time promised that the original armorial crests which topped the early 18th century entrance pillars, would be replaced by ‘something more appropriate’ to the current function of the building as the Irish Museum of Modern Art.

It appears that we now have that ‘something more appropriate to the entrance to the Irish Museum of Modern Art’, and it resembles three cheap, stainless steel, toilet roll holders!

A subliminal message perhaps that the art you are about to see is crap?
