Re: Re: national archives
Kinda agree with both sides there. The Park suffers from it’s scale and location. PErhaps the redevelopment of Heuston, Guinness and Clancy barracks may bring it into daily use for a large population but the sheer size of it, lack of enclosure and ridiculous city side access point all add to the problems. It’s not a good urban space,it’s not a city park in the traditional sense of Central Park or Stephen’s Green. All it has to boast is it’s scale, which ironically is also it’s great failing.
However yes there are a million sites in the current urban footprint of the city to accommodate this development. All we ever hear from DDDA is “iconic” this and “landmark” that – now Seamo has piped in with this. Has no-one introduced them?
