Re: Re: Liberty Hall redevelopment
I suspect retention is on the cards. This application must be viewed in the broader context of Ireland’s abysmal recent record on the recognition and protection of 20th century architecture, as recently highlighted to and acknowledged by the Department of Environment by the newly formed Irish branch of DOCOMOMO. The Further Information request also centered on establishing and expanding on the building’s architectural heritage value. For the most high profile example to be lost at this stage in the game would be an embarrassment, frankly.
