You must admit the Brits planned most of our pretty little towns and sweeping urban vistas.
Whatever the Brits been up to since is beside the point - those Irish towns did not plan and build themselves and they are the baseline for what we consider to be good urban planning.
The natives don't come anywhere close - they put a rusty steel pylon in the middle of their main street and they call it art.
These people are lost.
Your defeatist, submissive attitude is nauseating. Are you a unionist by any chance?
The Brits didn't just come to Ireland and build everything around us. We Irish built a lot of the architecture we have today. It was Irish architects and labourers that built Leinster House, Government Buildings, the GPO, and Four Courts, amongst others.
As for the spire, you are aware that the British gave it an architectural award?
