They were never quite sure what to do with Dublin’s Smithfield. Markets, concerts, ice rink and so on. In the end its just a wide open space that does not work. Was there on a Saturday evening at 5.30 when City centre 10 minutes away was packed. You would think there would some life in the area. Not at all. All that were around were a few drunks and a couple of people crossing the square on route to town.
