Re: Re: How well do you know Dublin?
Thanks for the welcome. This seems a great forum. I’m diving in the shallow end with the know your Dublin which is fascinating. I have lived all my life in Dublin. Schooling and professional career in centre city. But, now that I am retired, I am only starting to notice my surroundings. Which, I see, are disappearing faster than I can notice them. Or which I notice are disappearing faster than I can see them. Or whatever.
I have been following the Liberties regeneration, as one branch of my folks are from the Mount Brown/Fountain end of James’s St. I have also been following Theresa’s Gardens, due to the location of another branch, and Fatima and Dolphin House for yet another branch. All very depressing. Repeated breach of faith with the residents and abuse of power and patronising of the residents. Must have broken the hearts of the few officials who cared. End of rant.
Anyway, look forward to participating in this great forum.
