Re: Re: Thomas Street & James Street, Dublin!
Thanks Antoine for the background. I don’t know how you endure the bitter monitoring conditions as I pass every morning!
That’s good news about the post office ensemble, thanks to your efforts, but it’s still a shame for St. James’s. One would have thought the cabinets could be clustered and moved to the end of the wall at least. Also, all of these services are plotted and planned in advance, so this impact should have been spotted and eradicated on paper. It doesn’t bode well for the stretch further east, which is an Architectural Conservation Area, and which local authorities have a habit of thinking only applies to private property and not their own public realm. Have service placements been contrived in relation to the sensitive environment there? One suspects not.
Peering through the open windows of No. 29 today, the first floor ceiling, and our cornice, is gone.
