This London-style rank of pointless bollards unfortunately left in place. And that bloody fencing.

Came across a response by the City Manager to a councillor requesting the removal of this fencing:

Due to the design of the building with numerous nooks and crannies the harris fencing is preventing rough sleeping, loitering, dumping and anti-social behavior. It also allows Gardaí and security staff to see if anyone is in behind the fencing. Although its appearance is not aesthetically pleasing it is serving its function and it would be better to leave it in place until the building is occupied, than to have it removed or replaced with a hoarding.
