As for this “Opera Centre”….well, why not knock down the rest of O’connell street while they’re at it, huh? God only knows they’ve done enough damage to Limerick City as it is! It’s the WRONG location! This project should be located on the upper part of Roches street! This would bring MUCH NEEDED life to Parnel street, upper Thomas street and to upper Roches street itself!!!
Ah Mattersons factory…]moated[/B] in the late seventies on the old factory sites of Parnell Street / Roches Street. Nothing ever came out of it back then. Eircom still possess a part of the old derelict Mattersons factory site. The six / seven storey Eircom telephone exchange building has still that crude communication pylon on top of it (Limerick’s Half Finished :rolleyes: Mini Eifel Tower). If my memory serves me right the City Council had stopped Eircom during contruction of the pylon due to it’s intended height. Unfinished and therefore out of proportion it looks an even worse eye sore on the Limerick’s skyline!
