The type of thing goes on all the time in Ireland with the covert approval of councils politicians banks guards lawyers, etc, it's all about money.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.
