Visit the Grafton Quarter. Where Burger King is only a stones throw away from Mc Donalds.

I really don't get the fuss around this.

Grafton Quarter has been on DCC tourist maps for a few years now, it's not exactly a new thing.

It promotes the area, what's the harm? It's not like they are renaming Grafton Street.

Can't understand all the outrage myself either. These terms have been used on tourism literature and so on for ages now.

These lights are also funded by businesses in the vicinity of Grafton Street, not just those on the street itself. It's not that surprising that they have been pushing for 'Grafton Quarter'.

Dublin Town businesses, who are funding the lights, are divided into the Creative District, Dame District, Grafton Quarter, Talbot District and Dublin One.

Dublin City Council and its councillors (some who notably have been jumping on the social media bandwagon by criticizing this) are delighted to be saving hundreds of thousands of Euro by making businesses pay for the lighting.
