    I would guess a hoarding while they errect more horrible and unsightly spikes. May as well cover the city in razorwire.

      No, that is false. They are quite obviously just boarding up one of the nicest buildings in Dublin to stop homeless people sleeping there. The idea that there might be some sort of restoration of an old building just sounds completely illogical and almost farcical in comparison.

        Clearly. It’s also a sign of their inhumanity towards the less fortunate that they’ve put scaffolding up on the clock tower as well, the dastards

      The link states that the conservation is on the north entrance. This is the south so is not part of those works.

    Don’t be silly.

    It’s merely a precaution in case the citizenry turn violent and storm his office after Alan Kelly announces he’s cancelling the election, deposing Enda, burning Joan at the stake and anointing himself the king we all know we want and deserve. HAIL AK47.

    would be interesting to walk past without an over bearing sense of impending booze/drug fuelled doom. Looking forward to this

    If you look to the right of the photo you will observe that the footway is totally blocked by the hoarding and a litterbin, resulting in pedestrians having to walk in the bus lane.

    Congratulations to Quilligan architects for not noticing this dangerous situation when you were CADding up your site boundary drawings!
    Further congratulations to the OPW safety manager and the developer.

      It’s not totally blocked. I could totally fit through that gap. Stop looking for things to moan about.

        Your wheelchair must be really slimline, so.

        It’s a fair point, that does look tight for a wheelchair – and that’s a thing we worry about now.

        1. ReproBertie

          It might be a fair point if it was accurate or based on actual experience rather than a knee-jerk complaint-driven interpretation of a photograph. I passed it at lunchtime and can confirm that there’s plenty of room.

    2. Smooth Jimmy Apollo

      I walked by earlier and there’s easily room for 4 people to pass. Your mother, on the other hand…

      Unless you are hugely overweight, it is in no way blocked. People may have to go in single file which is hardly that much of a hassle. Are you massively plump?

      Don’t mind these blushirt apologists, Ollie: both you and I know that everything is the Govt’s fault, and nothing remotely positive can be attributed to them.

      1. Kieran NYC

        Speaking of, where’s the off-shoot wing of the Moore St gang to come and protest this and allege some spurious dodgy-dealings?

        THEY’VE BEEN GOT AT!?!

      Congratulations to you for shamelessly using the internet to display your ignorance and negativity.

    I’d imagine Alan ‘Shoebox’ Kelly’s plan is to turn the arches into another gated apartment block. Just about the right size for a family of six.
    Next up is a series of exclusive bus stop apartments and tree houses.

    hey stop deleting my insensitive and racially charged trolling, it gets you click don’t it?

  7. Truth in the News

    Has it Planning Permission, and who ever put it there is a hostage to fortune
    imagine all the anti water tax slogans painted on it, the fools, the fools, they
    have thought of everyting, but remembered nothing.

  8. Fididily

    I imagine it will be nice to have some privacy, no fun to have people looking in your front window space when you’re trying to sleep.

    “About the project: The project involves conservation and restoration of North Entrance area of the iconic Custom House, on Custom House Quay in Dublin City Centre”
    The hoarding is on the south side, who gave this architect the job?
