Home Forums Ireland Smithfield, Dublin Re: Smithfield Square is Burning Down…..


What does everybody think of the recent spate of burning buildings in Smithfield.

Approx 3 months ago two of the oldest buildings on the North Square of Smithfield Plaza were burnt down. The Green Party got a preservation order that prevented them being knocked down completely.[1]

Then a week ago Smithfield is once again blocked off because the building NEXT DOOR has also burnt.

This smells too much of coincidence to me. How strongly are these cases investigated? I presume that these buildings are being burnt down to shortcut the process to get permission to demolish these buildings, making way for ‘progress’


[1] A week later another building along the north quays also went up in smoke
