has anyone else noticed that the trees opposite the GPO do not look healthy – the leaves started turning brown about a month ago, which would have been early, plus they don’t look like they’re going through leaf senescence, they just look unhealthy.
to top it off, some of these trees have very recently put on new growth – certainly not what you’d expect for a tree packing up in an orderly fashion for the winter.
an interesting contrast to the jc decaux farce:
cheers – i can’t say i’m impressed with them.
so what’s happening to the doors of clery’s – replaced with your bog standard plain glass doors.
were the old ones past their sell by date and irreperable?

What puts this tragic case in even more context is the story contained in a few papers today about the three car passengers involved in a crash seven years ago who were awarded cumulative damages of 815,000 euros for injuries sustained.
One got 204,165 for a fractured leg, another got 165,252 for fractures, and the third got 445,632 for ‘injuries’. I don’t want to downplay these circumstances, and the parties involved were obviously badly injured, but it does highlight the point I made earlier about penalties not fitting the crime in the case of cycling. In the case cited above, he was overtaking on the inside, driving in a bus lane, doing 47 in a 30 zone and driving unaccompanied – all of which to me screams ‘very dangerous driving’ – yet his ‘genuine remorse’ seems to have resulted in a 1,500 fine and two-year ban.
are damages not usually the result of court cases seperate to the ones in which punitive action is taken against the offender?
if memory serves, the trees were planted post-1916 and thus have no historical value relating to the rising.
apols if this has been posted before, but it seems to have happened recently, but here’s a building i pass on blessington street – looks horrendous, and the asymmetric top floor windows make it look unbalanced.
Carrickmines M50 appeal is dismissed
The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal in relation to the Carrickmines works on the southeastern route of the M50 in Dublin.
The works were completed last year, and the motorway opened, but the appeal had been continuing its passage through the courts.
The case was taken by Dominic Dunne against the Minister for the Environment and DÃºn Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.
Mr Dunne occupied the Carrickmines Castle site in 2002.
It was argued that Section 8 of the National Monuments (Amendment) Act 2004, which introduced a special provision in relation to completing the M50 at Carrickmines Castle, was unconstitutional.
It was further argued that the 2004 Act contravened EU Directives, and that even if the Act did not, the Minister’s decisions did.
The Court unanimously rejected all the grounds of appeal.
anyone know how much i might expect to pay to have the damage below repaired?
the ends of the bricks were hacked off to allow the rendering to be done – 14 courses each side of the door?
i have enough salvaged bricks to supply one for each of the 28 courses.
any tips on how to clean bricks would also be appreciated.
the damage done i want to repair is around the door – a previous owner had the place pebbledashed, but the area around the door needed to be hacked back so the pebbledash didn’t swamp the frame. is it feasible to have the mutilated bricks replaced?
cheers, i’ve just been skip surfing.
got about 60 bricks of varying condition, apparently all the good stuff is buried. i need to undo some damage a previous owner of my place did to the front of the house. all i need now is to find a brickie. and then somehow pay him.
where would be a good place to go for salvaged dolphin’s barn brick?
i’ve just pulled a few out of a skip, but apparently all the good stuff is buried at the bottom.
that was about 8k an acre for the land alone.
anyone got martin naughton’s phone number?
i’d just be curious at what sort of use you could put the restored house to – at a rough guess, it’s well over 30,000 square foot. it’s about twelve miles northwest of ballinasloe, and if the conditions exclude a country club, what’s left?
cheers, but it was only idle curiosity.

how big is the file?
can you open it in a text editor and check out the header info – may give a clue as to the app in the first few lines.
