Hi all, I’m a new contributor to this site although I have been reading the message board with interest for a couple of years now. I’m Irish by birth and currently live in Australia. I look forward to reading the threads each day and am pleased to see the development that has taken place and continues in Ireland. However, it is frustrating to read about high rise developments obtaining planning approval but then never proceed. I live in Melbourne and am currently working in Brisbane which is only slightly larger than Dublin in population terms and there are quality high rise developments appearing everywhere without any of the trivial debate that seems to go on endlessly in Ireland. Why is this?

I know that some will say that’s it’s all well and good for me living on the other side of the world to be critical but I take a great interest in things Irish and want to see it shake off its parochialness.
