Re: Re: Vandalism by DLRCoCo
I think that the design dates from around 1932, but of course older designs were used by the local authorities for long afterward.
I am amazed that no one has yet commented on the very run down state of Georges Street in Dun Laoire.
Much of the stretch near Mc Donalds is empty and in decay, despite some interesting shopfronts. Nearby the former Gas Company building has a record shop as tenant, which is closing. The Bloomfield Centre is looking distinctly dreary, if relatively recent. There is a good number of “Pound shops” and charity shops and a closed pub, which suggest that trading is not wonderful, despite the car ban. There are, however, some nice shop facades remaining.
As for the DL Shopping Centre – well it is a shadow of what it once was, with some works going on there at present.
