Does anyone know about what’s happening with the Island field, afaik, no specific plans have been seen for it under the regeneration?
I walked from Arthur’s Quay, past the Cathedral, down Nicholas street and across Thomond bridge last night and the potential of that area is staggering. Of course, the biggest barrier to any proper development of the area is the existence of a ghetto right beside it. It’s a massive shame, as in theory, the Island field should be a desirable place to live, it’s close to town, has spectacular views of the river and Clare hills, plenty of space for development etc.
While I’m generally a fairly liberal person, I would love to see the entire Island field levelled, the current residents vetted and rehoused locally if possible, and a medeval quarter built around Nicholas Street with an entirely new community built on the Island field.
