Re: Re: Time to Complete the M50?
There certainly is a precedent for something like this in the area: The old coastguard’s house, for example, lies at the junction of Sandymount Road and Tritonville Road, now several hundred metres inland. At one stage this was directly on the seashore. The church in Irishtown – I’m not sure which denomination it is – also apparently has a ring built into its rear wall, to which ships used to be tied. I’ve never actually seen this, but I’ve been told this is the case.
So similar developments to the one suggested above have certainly happened in the past. However, I’d imagine that any plan to implement it would make the current kerfuffle about the Jury’s hotel site look extremely sedate by comparison.
