Wonderful photo of the former Limerick Ryan Hotel (Ennis Road) in todays Irish Times – It was taken from a helicopter hired by local residents who wanted to see what was going on behind the HUGE green canvas fence that surrounds the site. The developers have been served with an enforcement order to reinstate a 7 story wing that they had been partially removed!
All this on a development that was opposed by EVERY councillor. The assumption appears to have been that once it’s covered up by a big tent you can do what you want!
The Times article does not mention however that the 7 story wing was truely hideous.

I never saw this photo but when I stumbled across some images of the renovated Ardhu House Hotel today, I took a look on the city councils planning map site and it showed beautifully, the canvas coverings around the old 7 storey building in the aerial image below. The first two images unfortunately only shows partially the renovated Hotel. Is the development work now completely finished?
Anybody got better images?
