      More of a critique of how the council is doing its job. DLR is going to sh1t…no different, though, than pretty much everywhere else in Dublin.

    The idea is that free parking in Dun Laoghaire will save retailers in the town. That’s why the example of the market in the People’s Park is brought up. The seafront is ticking along fine and gets all the focus (new library, redevelopment etc.) Meanwhile the town continues its decline.

      Huge amount of new, and nice, shops opened recently: bakey, japanese food, craft beer. Over 50 new businesses from what I heard.

        Sounds promising. I should say I’m just interpreting what I understand the points being made in the cartoon are, because I’ve heard them numerous times.

    Its just weird that its a mix a sarcasm, then a fact (market), and characters that you wonder who they are. The library is a creche? And its all presented in a childish comic style…

    I’m not in Dun Laoghaire that often but I’ve always had to pay for parking when going to the People’s Park and very rarely see any parking available in the town itself.

    The town is nowhere near as pedestrian friendly as the seafront and more cars in the town would make me even less likely to venture towards the town

    I reckon we’re on the brink of a turnaround, just a couple more charity shops and the place will be thriving again

          I don’t need to defend Billy. But I will say that, sometimes, when you’re just basing your opinion of a person on every single thing you’ve ever read them say online, and when you reflect on the kind of things the person says and they way they say them, to whom and when, then that person can seem a bit maybe… not very nice.

          So I do understand where you’re coming from.
