The Irish Times and BreakingNews.ie are reporting that the Central Bank has been awarded planning permission for a “monumental” €300,000 outdoor sculpture for a public space outside its €140m HQ on the North Dublin Docklands.

Architects of the Central Bank, Henry J Lyons, told Dublin City Council that Ms Rothschild’s work is the “creation of a outdoor sculpture on a truly monumental scale, in a permanent location where a really strong and lasting engagement with the public is possible”.

The sculpture will take the form of a "Double Rainbow" rising to 10.5m and swooping over the centre of the plaza, spanning a distance of 14m before touching down lightly on the ground at eight different points.

What's puzzling from my perspective is, as a passer by of this site and its perimeter, where exactly is this LGBT Daddy Long Legs going to be located? There is no public plaza at the site - and certainly no one goes near that dystopian shithole unless they really have to.

And is the taxpayer going to be hit with the bill?

I’m sure that there’s many people that don’t appreciate shit being shoved in their faces relentlessly.

Read the Planner's Report. It's actually a private site on which it will be located, but be 10.5m in height.

It's at the rear of the building adjacent to New Wapping Street.

The official name of the piece is "A Double Rainbow".
