A disgrace and a complete lack of respect for our history and those who fought for our independence.
There is nothing to protect anything in ireland.

If a developer wants to knock and build, They go and pay for a report which states that the area is of little or no significance. The people who object are usually the general public and they cannot afford or cannot get organised quick enough (through no fault of their own) .

You see it throughout the country with Neolithic remains , you see it in the cities .

There is a good example in Camden st . The HQ of Na Fianna Eireann . Over 10 years ago at this stage, a developer knocked it down and then sold on the plot . There is a gap where it was and it has not been filled. I would imagine the developer thought it would be easy to sell it with no historical baggage and once sold .it becomes nobodies problem .

We need historical conservation laws that will hit developers hard if they break them .

Some very good points there, though I'd images things have improved since the brown envelope days of back in the 70s, 80s and 90s.

It's a tricky topic to push since it lacks the immediate human element that gets people riled up, but preventing the desecration and re-purposing of noteworthy old buildings is an issue that would receive almost universal support from the public. The only ones against it are the types that deserve to burn in hell; so any initiative for the protection and creation of great architecture would help weed out subversives from Universities and Politics, while also increasing morale rather than destroying it.

Dolly Parton fan faces bastards..I fucking hope they rot in hell . Scum. These are the type of Dolly Parton fans that should be made face up to their anti irish pro greed activities


That Orahilly house is as far removed from Georgian Architecture as you can get.
what philistine brought that thing onto the thread.?
By the looks of it too its a shoddily built house.
No loss if its gone.

And the Pedants Award of the Day goes to....(and not even an hour and a half into the day!)
Also better tell the South Dublin Georgian Core Residence Association that there interest in this matter is misplaced.

But regardless of all that, a building can have historic value regardless of its aesthetic appeal
And do you have no concern about the developers acting probably illegally, at least in haste to allow for there being no going back (they hoped)? They did so out of greed and expedience no doubt. If no one objects to this what will be next? Is there no line you would draw?
One thing I can guarantee - whatever goes up in place of the O'Rahilly House will have zero architectural merit. Just another box of glass and steel that will look like crap in 10 or 20 years.
