Quick question about roof for John Roberts square


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,510 ✭✭✭Max Powers

    Can anyone remember if there were proposals to put a roof on the square floated about 2008/09. I have a very vague memory of something of that nature.

    found it looks like a clever ides now!

    Agree, putting roofs on public areas, no matter where is nearly always a good idea.

    I think the idea is that it could then be used to encourage events to be held there, regular markets, concerts etc. etc. More footfall is always a good thing.

    Was that an April fools thing?

    Was the plan to put a roof in Arundel square as well? Was this announced around the time they said they were roofing the Apple market.
