Re: Re: Smithfield Wasteland
I just moved away from the Smithfield area recently, having lived there for over two years and walking around there a few weeks ago, I really felt that the area is dying, – with the closure of the two Spars and Thomas Reids, and the huge amount of empty buildings, it has a really desolate air about it lately
Dublin City Council needs to actually clean the area regularly, it’s a kip, especially at the weekends. It’s also full of knackers, and given the fact that there actually isn’t any reason for people to go down there (except maybe for the Lighthouse but they need to promote themselves more I think), it’s no surprise that’s its struggling.
The Friday market would be a good idea if it was on at the weekend, and if it was actually value for money – pastries for 5 euro? No thanks!
