A crane in central Dublin in April

Further to yesterday’s crane story in Cork’s Evening Echo…

Justine Comiskey, in yesterday’s Irish Times, reported:

There were 43 cranes visible over the centre of Dublin from the seventh floor of The Irish Times building on Tara Street on May 1st. This is a rise of three – or 7.5 per cent – on the previous month’s total of 40.

There was a slight increase in the number of cranes both north and south of the Liffey: the northside total rose by one to six while the southside figure was up two to 37.

…The Irish Times will be conducting its crane survey once a month to track construction levels in the city.
