I was in the city centre today (Sunday) for the 1st time in about a fortnight and I acually couldnt believe my eyes, Look what Matthew Stephens Jewellers have done to the georgian building at 8 O Connell Street!
I thought something was up when they removed the second floor facade a while back but now they’ve inserted a huge window and plastered over the brickwork! How the fuck was this allowed to happen, I though those days were over!
I know Limerick City Council are an incompetent bunch at the best of times but this is unbelievable!
Two storey shopfronts plus render finish to existing brickwork!
It will probably set a new precedent for all the other retailers operating in similar georgian buildings.(Jewellers, Fast-food outlets, Shoe shops etc, etc.) It will be very difficult for the city council to refuse them planning permission on heritage grounds as they all can chant back â€œeverybody else is doing it so why canâ€™t we?â€. At least a new render finish over the brick work should preserve it :rolleyes: against pollution, frost etc, etc. (Ah Tuborg ]not plastered[/B] as well?)
