The Boat Club plan has all the hallmarks of a “please everyone, please no-one” construction.:confused: As with every development on the river, it purports to be all things to all people, a cultural amenity, a sportsclub, a tourist site, a coffee house, and yet it won’t be “enormous”, how exactly? How does it either complement the river or the city?
Where is your sense of curiosity when somebody makes a proposal for such a potential cultural amenity? Would it not be fair to give the Limerick Boat Club and the developer Michael Daly an opportunity to present their plans first to the public. Itâ€™s one thing raising concerns about the consequences of any particular development, but itâ€™s not positive to knock it outright before seeing whatâ€™s on offer. Innovatively and quality wise he has delivered very well on phase one of the Riverpoint. So when he says â€œWhat we are aiming to achieve is a building which is sensitive to its surroundings, that is tastefully done and that will enchance the riverside city development,” explained Michael Daly, Developer, Fordmount Property Groupâ€, Iâ€™m curious to see despite my own reservations, what he will present. Are you not?
