Hope I’m not sounding like a broken record, but it really needs to be questioned what they did with all the granite – complete pavements or just kerbing – taken up in recent times for works such as Luas.

Both Luases got a completely new street treatment in the city centre. Streets like Harcourt Street, Abbey Street and Chancery Street would’ve had a lot of old granite. Where was it all put, and why do they claim they’ve run out of it now (as they did in the recent Henrietta Street case)? Did they sell it off to help rebuild Iraq or something?

There used to be a huge mound of it piled up in the yard of that Marrowbone Lane depot (which is located between Guinnesses & Cork Street). I saw it myself a few years ago. But it’s gone now.
