Another one that slipped through the net! This is the site of what is currently the treaty bar, the plan is to replace it with apartments and ground floor commercial, the two adjacent houses are also to be demolished. I really dont see the logic behind this planning decision, that building is poorly designed and totally out of character with the area, personally I think it has the potential to do more damage than the nearby Jacksons turret proposal. This is a very sensitive location on Thomond bridge and opposite the treaty stone and Saint Munchins church and its going to be severely compromised just so some developer can line his pockets, what a load of rubbish!:mad:
Looks like the owner had never serious intentions of re-developing the pub himself and just went through the motions of the planning process to get the maximum price for his property. The whole row of houses, with their â€˜arsesâ€™ to the river are quite a sight!:eek: Maybe the Limerick City Council should acquire the whole row, demolish them and extend the river promenade over them? Pity that they blew â‚¬ 83 million on a â‚¬ 10 million sewerage pipe, canâ€™t be too much left in the kitty.
Any ideas yourself?
