      Dublin Corporation is investigating the collapse last week of an historic protected arch in Dublin’s Fishamble Street on the site of an apartment development owned by Temple Bar Properties which could be fined as much as £1 million if found guilty of a breach of new legislation designed to protect such historic structures.

      Call me a cynic, but I always think it’s too much of a co-incidence when something that is in the way of developers collapses suddenly.

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m not accusing anyone of anything.

      I believe what often happens even if the structure isn’t ‘accidentally’ hit by a JCB or something is that the site is left untouched BUT the buildings on either side are demolished – the resulting lack of support and heavy vibration can undermine and often results in the building being condemned for safety sake.

      Achieving the same convenient end result as illegal demolition.

      This is just what I’ve been told can happen. This was also related to me about 9 years ago during a discussion re: Temple Bar – strangely enough.

      I see in today’s IT, that it was takne down under the supervsiion of an archeologist…. however in yesterday’s Tribune, the photos showed brick and material strewn across the street – looked more as if it was just knocked down rather than taken down, but maybe I’m mistaken…..

      I think that its the Turbine going for dramatic effect over substance – at least TBP are going to put it up again asap.
