    The Iveagh Markets under serious threat of falling down

    According to the Irish Times today, An Taisce have asked Dublin City Council to step in and save the old market building from dereliction after a proposed restoration and development by 'Temple Bar hotelier and publican Martin Keane' ground to a halt.

    Anyone who ever used to old market will be horrified by this situation. Bloody developers!

    very annoying. I was looking forward to the new development, it would be fantastic for the area which is now finally gentrifying.

    That's a bugger. I have very fond memories of going there in the 70s.

    If An Taisce really want to get the support of Dublin City Councillors for saving the Iveagh Market then maybe they should suggest that it be re-named "Gaza North West" and that the Palestinian flag be flown above the building every day.

    Never visited the market, but I remember the school taking us swimming in the Iveagh Baths in the 1960's - my main recollection is of how cold it always was!

    Are the baths still there?

    I believe it's now The Iveagh Fitness Club.

    If An Taisce is in favor of it, I'm against it. They think Dublin should be a dead museum rather than a living city.

    Iveagh Market was going to be developed as a hotel during the first decade of the noughties.

    When the building was operating as a market, it had the nickname "the smelly market".
    Used to hate being brought in there when I was a nipper.
