Re: Re: Liberty Hall
Like it or, Liberty Hall has matured into an iconic structure of Dublin. It certainly stands up better than other structures of it’s era and as such should be sensitively redeveloped. County Hall in Cork was gutted stripped and comprehensively altered despite protected status which screams of hypocrisy. When is an “old” building old? The building stock of Dublin worthy of preservation does not stop circa 1910.
In any case the removal of Lib Hall and redevelopment of the site to a lower (say 5+1) strucutre would actually worsen the effect of O’Connell Bridge house when viewing the Liffey from the West.
