logo_dublincityMuch property development in Ireland has been badly thought-out, with poor quality building and few facilities, according to property developer Mick Wallace. “Too much of what’s been in this town [Dublin] for too long is bad quality, and that needs to be looked at again,” Wallace said. ‘‘It’s about time we stopped covering Meath, Wicklow and Carlow in concrete. I don’t think it’s good enough if we don’t care what we leave behind ourselves after we’ve built.” Wallace was speaking at Dublin City Council’s ‘Maximising the City’s Potential’ conference in Croke Park last week. “We should be focusing a bit more on creating a strong society,” he said. “I see a lot of things that could be different, that should be different. We have a lot of housing estates without playing fields, a lot of apartment blocks without community facilities”.
