    They had to complete the archaeological dig first.
    Once that was done, the mounds were marked out & placed. And left over winter to bed down.

    Nature takes a while.

        That said, the idea of a new park in the city is a wonderful thing. No doubt there are more than a few developers smarting from the loss of a prime piece of real estate…..:-P

    Those who swallow in the Northside/Southsided mythology wont get the irony of one Southside neigbourhood taking a dig at another.

      This is the first purpose built park DCC have ever created. All others were donated to the city.

      Good to know theres some chance of it getting finished. St Patricks park is of my personal favourites in the city

    :) more likely it would take even longer out there due to the 100+ planning objections from various retired “concerned citizens”, an taisce etc. regarding potential impact on the streetscape (aka nimby) being that it’s adjacent to the boundaries of the ACA and all blah blah

    that park will make a well needed improvement to the area when it’s finished, lovely!

      it’ll make a much needed improvement for around 6 weeks – but it may not take the locals that long to wreck it and turn it into a magnet for antisocial behaviour

        …..just ‘Ban The Cans’ and ‘The Junkies’. Police it properly, and it will be fine.

    Don’t agree. You’d still be mugged quicker on Cork Street than Dalkey and by a worse class of skanger.
