Old faces are far more interesting don’t you think?

There are those who wish for Ireland to step beyond the architectural relics of the past. There are some who feel the need to go higher, cleaner and shinier.

Create more hotels of worldly standards for the millions of tourists to stay in. Make them similar to those of every major city in the world.

But surely they actually come to see the architectural relics of the past and not those shiny new buildings. Surely it is the old, and the dirty that offer the history and the intrigue?

Go ahead and build higher. Go ahead and make them shiny. But please don’t step on the worn and weary along the way. You might run out of interesting things to show those who would visit. Those who wish to listen to the stories of our past!
