Sarsfield Credit Union have got the go-ahead to â€œrenovate and refurbishâ€ the former Limerick Savings Bank (The Stone Jug) on Glentworth Street. The building has been vacant for the past 18 months since Permanent TSB sold up and moved the branch out to Dooradoyle. Sarsfield Credit Union will be moving from their current location next to the Belltable on O Connell Street.
I walked past the building for the first time in a good while recently and couldnâ€™t help but notice how poorly the site has been maintained. Its strewn with rubbish, weeds and other vegetation are growing all over the place and thereâ€™s a fair amount of graffiti smeared across the facade! The steps in front also seem to have become the new hangout for the local Goth freak show!:rolleyes:
Its pretty embarrassing to see one of the cityâ€™s most interesting and unique buildings in such a state. Indeed the area immediately surrounding the Stone Jug is an absolute joke, the pavement is in bits and yet another of the ESBâ€™s elegant corner poles, heavily laden with overhead wires totally detracts from the character of the building!:mad:
I really cant understand why they didnâ€™t complete the public realm improvements down to the Catherine Street junction as part of the Baker Place project, its only about 30 yards for Godâ€™s sake!
