Re: Re: Smithfield, Dublin
That’s the truth of it really – you can have the nicest spaces in the world but if there’s nothing happening, they’re just windswept barren areas. And in an Irish climate, no end of architectural intervention is going to make that space better used for 8 months of the year. Smithfield and Newmarket need to be turned back into markets – not just farmer’s markets but all sorts of goods, and not once a week – 4/5 days a week. They’d become a draw in themselves eventually.
