Now you see my intererst, so I logged onto the site and got "COMING SOON!". To further my cuiosity googled "Dublin Coastal Development", and the first link I got was this: http://dublincoastal.imeem.com/video/2wikmKG9/the_dublin_coastal_development/. Take a look.
How was a plan like this kept quiet until now? It's impressive, and could end up looking like Dubai (except with rain).
just noticed that I have a couple of typos in the quote, I apologise to whomever I need to apologise.
It seems like a spoof...but like, if planning permission went in...it could be a very big spoof.
Very kitch though, with the green shamrock and all that...
Great link, thanks for posting. Wow wow and wow! I'd be massively impressed by a development like this. I hope its not a fake.
It really does sounds like a joke:
"Howth 2 - an exact replica of Howth on the Southside"
have you seen the end of the video linking to www.funda.ie/win
all an advertisement for a new property website
Hmm. Dodgy. There are no links on google to anything on this development or the supposed japanese company who are supposed to be doing it, and something on this scale would have to be being talked about elsewhere as well. Ah well. Nice to see what it would be like if something like this ever did happen.
Moved from After Hours.
From a whois search, the website www.dublincoastaldevelopment.com as listed in the paper belongs to Gary Delaney of Clogher Road, Crumlin. Is this the HQ of the global Wasaki Corporation?
Nice looking website, but a bit thin on content.
The worlds only giraffe only zoo*
Shamrock City, a world on water that can be seen from space
I've just pished myself laughing
*Why would anyone go to a zoo to just see giraffes
Giraffes are really cool
Where did you get the giraffe zoo info from?
Edit: The site only accepts registration from professionals at management level earning in excess of €100K and over 30 years old I only qualify on one count
Dubai in the rain! classic. Dubai looks awful. This looks worse. It HAS to be a joke.
It's in the clip.
Its a hoax
