    I’d wish they’d hurry up…the Chinese would have built a mega city in time they have been fluting around with the Renovations

        Actually Brother Barnabas it does, I miss powering around the old gallery when I’m in town.

      And forcibly evicted a hundred of villages, flooded a valley, destroyed an archaeological site and massively polluted a river.

      But ok.

      I shouldn’t bite but… do you EVER have anything positive to say about Dublin, Louis?
      Tiresome in the extreme.

    Louis, the gallery in the running with that building site on Shelbourne Road which is going into its 4th year of construction. One might think there’s something crooked or incompetent going on,or maybe both.

    Considering it didn’t take that long to build the Aviva or Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport

      The entire building had to be underpinned without disturbing the fine art above. A serious feat of engineering
