Wonder how the proposed memorial fits in…
here’s a very large 2.5mb image you just about see the memorial under the trees, slightly hedging their bets i think http://www.dublincity.ie/RecreationandCulture/ParnellSquareCulturalQuarter/PublishingImages/PSQ%20plan%20view.jpg
although Mícheál Mac Donncha and otehrs say the report was “published” yesterday I can’t find it anywhere on the DCC website. do you have link to it?

more dodgey advertising deals
DUBLIN City Council has been criticised for passing up on hundreds of thousands of euro in potential advertising revenue from a company it allows to hang posters on public property around the capital.
The local authority has had a longstanding agreement with Irish Poster Advertising Ltd (IPA) – an events promotion company – which advertises gigs and other events on hoardings and in public spaces.
In response to a recent query, council officials said they did not receive any fees from the company in exchange for advertising space but that in return, IPA takes responsibility for maintaining the hoardings.
The claim was denied by IPA, which insisted it has always paid a “rate” for the privilege but was unable to elaborate on the arrangement.
Both parties were due to meet last week in order to clarify matters.

huh so how can you have the dublin core bikes to be continued to funded by advertising by jc decaux and lots more outside that area funded by part public and part private money? the deal is still be trumpeted far and wide as a success, without ever mention advertising or where the new funding will come from, its good to have hte bikes working successfully, but at least mention the facts people. Andrew “billboards” Montague taking credit whenever he can without mention the advertising part.
so if they bypass an bord pleannala which professional reviews the planning implications of the metropoles etc? the councils own planners? the cllrs
Prison vans clog streets at new €140M courts because they have nowhere to park
