Maintenance of our public buildings
May 26, 2000 at 12:28 pm #704808
On a recent visit back to dublin after being away for several months I paid a visit to the newly refurbished connelly rail station and the DART station in Dun Laoighre. I believe that CIE have done a good jod on both stations however their maintenance of them is dreadful. The new floor tiles were filthy in both stations and bits of litter could be seen evrywhere, glass doors and windows were also filthy. I don`t just mean to pick on CIE the same could be said for many of our public buildings. What is the point in spending millions of pounds on these new buildings that we are all supposed to be proud of when we can not even maintain them.
I for one will certainly not be proud of them until maintenance standards are improved.

One other building crying out for a painting is the entrance to the Department of Agriculture. It is a fine fitout inside but why do they have to leave the canopy outside in such a state?

i’ve noticed that about the new connolly ok, i think there seems to be a problem in that the flooring material doesnt stay clean for long…..

I think that many other buildings not just our public ones suffer from this lack of caring. I believe that Dublins litter problem should be ranked alongside traffic congestion and drug abuse as the major issues that need to be tackled if we are to become one of Europes` premier cities.

There needs to be a serious anti littering campaign in this dump of a country one that will imprint itself on the minds of the young so that they will think twice about contributing to the mess that’s all around them.
The Government should realise that this will be emoney well spent – after all, I’m sure we’re losing tourists by the plane load.
I’v enever seen this place as bad as in the last year. Must be this selfish ‘Celtic Tiger Bullshit’ coupled with a huge segment of the population being themselves thrown on the rubbish tip…

…i would rather live in a city full of litter that in one who brush their waste under the carpet (grass)at least we are made aware of our fetish from mass consumption and insane waste of resources….
…litter = waste in the wrong place ….
burying it in holes, and burning it is surly the not the correct place or is it really waste in the first place?
we a wasteful society at least Dublin doesnt deny this fact….
try this for a litter campain:
“DONT Litter,DONT use this Bin”

We do overproduce the stuff in the first place alright.

I am currently working in England and I have to say that English people are no better than the Irish when it comes to littering its just that their local authorities are better at picking it up
than ours are.
Hopefully the relevant authorities in Ireland and especially in Dublin will see fit to put more resources (and by resources I mean individual workers picking litter and not those less than satisfactory green hoover things)into the cronic litter problem that we face
