          I do. It looks terrible on the rendering, too…

          It’s a quite small area, and with the wall feels very enclosed.

      It’s a permanent flood protection system – will be clad in granite or brick I think. There will be gates/gaps etc in it, that in event of flooding will be sealed. Similar to whats on the Dodder.

      Options were to build a wall along quays or else move it back and preserve most of the Campshires (which is what they did)

      Global warming, rising sea levels etc.

    My instinct here was to construct an inane comment that reflected Ireland’s response to the refugee crisis… but I have seen that terrible image from Turkey so far this this morning. I can’t focus on my work, or anything, I just want to go home and see our kid.

    Is there a Shocked People march being planned that one can go to?
    One that isn’t being organised by the rowdies?

      The image that the worlds media didn’t have the dignity not to publish, some media folk got so excited to publish that image for all the sales and clicks it would bring. Men, women and children have died escaping their countries, this child isn’t the first and won’t be the last. But don’t get suckered in by the media’s claims publishing the image was to highlight the issue cause it was all about them making money, nout else.

          Council doesn’t need planning permission for its own works usually. Also if it’s a flood defence it might be exempt in some other way, possibly.

    I’m guessing this is not the final wall but a temporary structure on which cladding will be placed?
