^^^ love it 🙂
Not having been back, since just after they started demolition, I’m really looking forward to seeing what it looks like. I’m sure that from a “visitors” point of view it will be a million times better than that old relic that I used to go to!
So is that last picture of Devins’ a mock up from an old image or are Burger King up to their old advertising tricks again?
Is there a time frame for the removal or will this be another long term project?
I guess I’ll see some of it when I come through this summer.
I like it, but will it ever be built?
It will be great to finally get rid of that hideous polished granite facade. It’s been an eyesore for as long as I can remember.
Nothing to do with alignment but isn’t it amazing, the volume of buses in every picture of O’Connell St.
That’s so pathetic that I had to check and see if it was April fools day:( Terrible.
Ah, O Donohoes, I remember having a more than a few pints in there, right after school. A lot of us from Colaiste Mhuire knew that age wasn’t a big factor in that bar, but it was a real kip inside!
Thanks for that link, Paul. It certainly is interesting to remember what that area used to be like, wandering through there in the late 70’s and early 80’s it was pretty dodgy. some of what was done is very “touristy” but most of it is a definate improvement.
That’s an absolute disgrace and of course the longer they get way with the more other companies might think they can too!
I hope it goes ahead too, it would be great to bring some life to what is a very bare concrete quayside with some minimal street furniture. Wexfords narrow streets are nice in their own way but this would help alleviate the press of people especially on those sunny summer days!
Can someone explain why there are all those doors to nowhere in the walls? Surely it can’t be just for their “good looks”!
North Circular Road?
Who owns the “Mhuire” now? Was it given back to the state? I think the idea of a luxery hotel is a bit fanciful for that site, although I remember from my schooldays that there is a fairly large upper and lower enclosed yard behind the school and that may help it’s value.
The garden of Rememberance was always a great place to sit outside, it was a nice suntrap and well protected from the wind and the prying eyes of the teachers!December 26, 2005 at 11:54 pm in reply to: A Vacant city – Dublin on Christmas Morning (pics) #764683
Maybe for you!
I absolutely agree. the GPO as a post office has been an integral part of the city for as long as I can be remember. Also with all the changes that have gone on over the past 10 – 20 years it is even more important to have this link to the past. There is plenty of room to the rear for a museum etc.
Or maybe it is Nelson’s revenge! You know splinters from when his statue was blown up.
there are more obstacles there than on a pinball machine!
