      Metroplis ????????
      Dublin a Metroplis, who the hell came up with that?. A Metroplis?. I can’t get my head around that one, DUBLIN IS A SMALL CITY, understand. Tokyo, Paris, London, Cairo, Sao Paulo, Mexico Ciy, Beijing, Shangai, Manilla, Jakarta, New York etc etc are metropolises not Dublin, ah ah what a joke, the people who say this have never been outside of Dublin or they are just plain ignorant or stupid, or got delusions of grandure.
      Ive heard O,Connell street is the widest street in the world, give me a break, far from it.
      What next, the only city with trams, the only city with an airport, the only city with a tunnell, I could go on but I won’t.
      Wake up and educate yourself about the world and broaden them narrow little minds of yours.
      Thank You.

      Metropolis – it’s just another word for the capital city of a country or the chief city of a province or region. The term is as applicable to Dublin as it is to New York, Harare, Riga or Edinburgh.

      ….or the title of one of the all time classics; Fritz Lang’s 1920s silent film about a futuristic city where the working classes live underground.

      Sean you’re really trying to get a reaction- multiple postings of the same message?

      Definition of metropolis; the capital city of a country. So there you go Sean; you’re in a metropolis as well!

      You appear to be the narrow minded one who doesn’t know his ass from his elbow in terms of the concept of metropolis.

      Hey Sean – if you’re going to post a rant about ‘stupidity and ignorance’ in future, it may be more effective if you learned to spell first.
      Fair enough, you got ‘metropolis’ right once out of several attempts, but next time you might want to run a spell check over delusions of ‘grandure’ and ‘tunnell’. And ‘Manilla’. And ‘Shangai’.

      Just a thought.

      Ah ah… Isn’t that Alan Partridge’s catchphrase?

      I did not once but a few times hear that O Connell St in Dublin was refered to as the widest street in the world, was actually said on a RTE programme a while back, fact.
      Secondly I am not a narrowminded person, just because I misjudged the defination, the world ain’t going to fall apart over it. I’ve learned something, is that not what forums are about apart from other things like giving “YOUR OPINION”, i have my own mind and a right to agreee, disagree and give an opinion if it’s liked or not?
      I am a controversial character and this may show on my replys, u just going to have to get used to it.
      Also my spelling ain’t great because I be at work and quickly log on to read or reply so I don’t have a chance to go over everything.
      Sorry, I can’t be perfect like all the rest of you as I am only human.

      Thanking You.

      FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FOR IRELAND NOW

      hmm.

      I am inclined to believe in a federal ireland, as well, to a limited degree; but if I have to side with semi-literates who can’t spell, use ‘u’ instead of you, and say “I be at work”, I demur.

      In any case Sean you find that the thread you started so inarticulately mentioned that it made you laugh that Dublin was considered a Metropolis. Turns out it is.

      Makes you feel stupid? It should.

      Eh everyone take a deep breath and chill out :). “U” all acting like u a bunch of snobs here. I’m an intelligent person but I don’t need to critisice, (spelling probably wrong, I think I may be Dyslexic???? spelling please)
      We talking on a forum here not writing out a report.
      Anyway I heard it said that once you go above 6 floors the cost of the development rises?
      Also here in Castlebar there has been a lot of retail development lately and I believe when town/city centres developing retail space the top floors should have apartments, thus giving life to the streets and espically after midnight the place would not go dead, can you see where I coming from. I think all these apartments should have balconies overlooking the street.
