There was a Jones Lang LaSalle “Crane Watch” report - can you imagine!

The Central Bank used to do an informal count once a quarter from the top floor on Dame St from where you can pretty much see everything.

I am not sure how conducive the new quayside offices are to this though.

Just curious, has your life improved since returning to Poland ?
Is there anything that’s not as good there compared to Ireland ?

I recently spoke to a Pole and a Hungarian who told me that they are each separately planning to return home after a decade or more in Ireland (Dublin).
Both have youngish kids, and their main complaint was lack of quality of life here, due to the cost of accommodation.

I heard someone say there’s one crane in Waterford. I can’t confirm or deny it myself.

Ned’s is gone :frowning:. It was a good place for sneaky pints, no one knew of it and those that did never went in. The stairs to the jacks were lethal I don’t know how the place was insured with them.

Some nice pictures of cranes on the Waterford Wildlife twitter feed.

New record - 121 cranes on 1 February. Four times more than when this count started three years ago.

ooooo … this makes me nervous.
Is there any place I can find the resi/comm breakdown ?


#24

I always liked to call it (and wished it really was called) Hawkwind House, and see if people noticed in conversation (some variation of a deliberate EggCorn).
Hopefully they use a sonic-attack to do the demolition

Most of this is not being financed by the domestic banking system but by a new network of “shadow banks”.

Also mentioned in the april 2019 NTMA research paper, I linked to earlier in the pretty charts thread.
