    Page 9 of todays Metro has a planning application to Dublin City Council. Let me copy it for you so you can understand my interest ----

    "Dublin City Council - Planning Permission is sought by Dublin Coastal Development, Ltd. to reclaim 300 hectares of coastal waters for construction of three islands zoned as urban/suburban including 4 mile dual carraigeway, 1 mile viaduct, aerodrome, 4 mile railway line, 180 square metre railway station, 42,000 3, 4 and 5 bed appartments and villas, three playgrounds, one zoo, 72 multi-story office blocks with car-parks, three 120 berth marinas, roundabouts, two multi-story shopping malls, 200 retail units, 75 restaurants, two multi-screen cinemas, three theatres, 28 licensed premises, two schools, 23 casinos, seven hotels, 30 hectarea of green belt, three 18 hole gofl courses.

    FOR FULL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT VISIT WWW.DUBLINCOASTALDEVELOPMENT.COM"

    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).

    That's mental!

    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.

    Fingers crossed!

    It really does sounds like a joke:
    "Howth 2 - an exact replica of Howth on the Southside"
    lmao

    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.

    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.

    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 :eek: I only qualify on one count :o

    Yeah was just about to say that.

  • Registered Users Posts: 433 ✭✭ giddyup


    Of course its a hoax - it's viral marketing and we're the mugs discussing it. Funny though and well produced. I'd go to a giraffe only zoo every day.
