Limerick Boat Club
That’s a big challenge to pull off.
The elegant “cut-stone” Sarsfield’s Bridge remains for me the central, dominant building and its add-ons i.e. Limerick Boat Club, Shannon Boat Club, War of Independence Memorial are only of secondary importance. Not to mention those superficial cosmetic hanging baskets and the draping necklace of white lights which in my opinion are both only used to dress up a poorly designed building. This bridge is most certainly not.
The two buildings of the Limerick Boat Club are both well past their shelf life date. New modern club facilities such as gym, indoor rowing basin, social-function room would give the club a major boost to enrol new rowing members. The Shannon River remains an under utilised natural resource in Limerick city.
Fair enough Michael, Sean but maybe you could upload larger images onto your web sites so that we can get a better, more detailed impression of your proposal.
IT SEEMS THAT MR.DALY REALLY HAS THE PLANNERS & POLITICIANS EARS. THE MARRIOTT HOTEL ON HENRY STREET IS CLEARLY A FULL STOREY HIGHER THAN SURROUNDING DEVELOPMENTS AND IS THE ONLY CITY CENTRE DEVELOPMENT OF THAT SCALE IN THE LAST FEW YEARS THAT WAS GRANTED PERMISSION WITHOUT HAVING ANY CAR PARKING ON SITE!
