just wondering how is Landsdowne progressing? … I am doing some research into the new US super embassy in Baghdad and I noticed that the embassy and landsdowne share the same project management – Berger Devine Yaeger…hopefully this is not a bad omen!
I don’t understand what the last four posts are about????:confused:
Well thank you Starch…I stand wholey corrected. I imagined this centre would be as busy as say the Financial Regulator’s info centre on Dame Street. A great idea to be sure but is it ever used, since many people would probably access information like this by internet and phone. However as you point out there seems to be a well thought out case for this centre. So by all means…
For the record my “taxpayer” arguement does not stretch to foreign aid. I completely support the Irish government being an aid donor.
No problem stephen, sorry for going off on a rant… I was sleepy! …yeah sure there is a lot of good information online but to debate and pass information it’s always best to do this face to face and so this is the reason for the centre…

oh the old ‘taxpayer’ argument eh?
This is all about giving Irish Aid a face, so that the taxpayer can see how Ireland’s development aid, which will be 1.2 billion by 2010 is spent, it’s also about engaging people to have a role in the issues, to volunteer at home or abroad and personally I think it’s something to be super proud of. 😀
Secondly you obviously know nothing about NGOs in Dublin, CÃ³mhlamh who will be co-running the centre run events continually and they are always packed, so please don’t worry yourself about it being empty – because it won’t.
The centre will be a resource for children and young people as well as for the wider public, so it will have a continuing programme of events such as exhibitions, debates, lectures, conferences, cultural events, film screenings and theatre performances. I’m sure you can agree that something which engages kids at an early age to consider their world around them to be a great thing.
For anyone who’s interested in development issues you can see the upcoming events on their website http://www.irishaid.gov.ie/centre/events_list.asp
first up great to see Irish Aid on O’Connell street …..from the images so far it looks quite conventional, nothin to daring, bu I guess it’s the internal content that matters most on this occasion…..anyhow judging from what I can see so far I would expext more from that DePaor guy !
….Liam Neeson closed the Lyric last weekend> now for the demolition : )
