Meanwhile, the bungalows on the outskirts of Athlone are hideous.
And don’t forget the mock stone-clad wall and piers for the front.
On a positive note, the new Athlone IT buildings add interest to the road in from Dublin.
I was really uplifted by that piece on the Irish Times’ architecture page last week, about how a housing scheme – in Tipperary Town – could be designed to attract ‘middle earners’. I hope initiatives like this can be pushed forward promptly by local authorities, to stem this awful direction that all Irish towns are headed in, with deterioration of historic fabric in the core and a rush of bungalow building on the outskirts. Well done to all involved in that project – Carew Kelly architects, James Pike etc.
