    It’s frightening, isn’t it Paul? Really frightening. These people are running the city. These guys are actually IN CHARGE of redesigning our public realm!

    This is, simply, the worst possible outcome one could possibly imagine, to the degree one wonders if it’s an early April Fools joke.

    Kitschy, postmodern adornments contrived for a playground hanging off some ghost estate in Sallins – on Grafton Street.

    To use the aul phrase, you couldn’t make it up.

    The so-called prototype doesn’t seem to have the scallowed edge

    The main wall mounted lamps have been installed now. Very disappointing to see the poor outcome. These leaf yokes are truly awful.

    I think it looks drab. However at least the private sector is coming on board. The street looks better cared for at least. The street furniture remains awful, the paving is dull and the mismatch obvious. The scheme lacks elegance in my view. The second phase of work is taking ages, only two other streets done.
