    Default Dartmouth Square now protected (at last)

    Dartmouth Square was tonight made a special conversation area by Dublin City Council, preventing Noel O'Gara's ever nuttier schemes for the park.

    Bet his isn't happy.

    Huzzah!

    Minor point - "special conversation area"? Are you sure? I mean, it's a lovely concept...I'll certainly be going there for my next chat.

    What has happened to Noel. He was a member here for a while I recall.

    good,

    Source?
    We need to radically change every system that has enabled the wholesale destruction of the Irish landscape, rural and urban. There is no time for incremental step by step measures. The systems have failed utterly and the only hope for a real recovery requires the rule book to be torn up completely.

    Any chance they'd do the same for Leinster Lawn?
    Just one more glaring example of how our political classes don't believe that normal laws/rules apply to themselves.

    He surfaced on archiseek for a while over xmas ranting about the "waste that is Sandymount strand" supporting an overground motorway, then he went on a mad one about dead patriots and bureaucrats. I think he got banned. Was he banned here? He was pretty funny.

    Don't know whether he was banned. He was certainly here in the runup to the election.

    He is also in favour of putting dual carriageways on top of the canals, and a motorway along the Liffey. I've seen one of his letters to the DTO on the subject - very much a green ink job.

    The 0 comments left under "Leinster House Shouldn’t Be Surrounded By Concrete And Cars" on Shane Ross's blog indicates that nobody cares.
