It seems like an age since I've last seen this fine structure in all of it's glory without the netting and scaffolding obscuring the view of the building's dome. Although a likely necessity in order to preserve it's structural integrity, it is nonetheless hideous - more so as the building is so visible throughout the city from top to bottom. It's one of the first things one notices when visiting Dublin moving on from Heuston Station on toward Parkgate street and beyond for one.

It will certainly be a good day when Gandon's masterpiece is not only fully secured, but once again fully visible on the Dublin skyline.

Dont you know there is something rotten going on here.
The cupola over the dome has been covered for YEARS WITHOUT PROPER EXPLANATION..

The structure is the responsibility of the highly secretive state organization called OPW afaik.

If you are friendly with any of them you are made for life.

The OPW, short for officeof public works is the highly secretive state body responsible for the billions of building real estate operated by the Irish state.
One rarely sees jobs advertised for its much coveted highly paid positions.
It tenders out contracts per annum for many many millions to maintain and construct the states vast building portfolio.
The oversight and scrutiny on these lucrative contracts is shrouded In mystery.
