Landlords. Don't believe the hype.

I’ll say one thing for those centres, I can now go into Dublin City Centre on the weekends and I have the place almost to myself.

That’s a little unfair, the Ilac centre has a good library.

It used to have a big balloon that went up
and down
and up
and down
and up
and down
and up
and down
and up
and down
(continue ad infinitum)

It should have been a protected structure.

That was deadly… I remember being brought in to go up in Irelands first Bubble lift… A SPECIAL TREAT …

Ilac centre library:

  • full of smelly homeless people
  • dodgy green carpet
  • 1980s selection of computer books

I think it is good for company records and like like…

oh, and these people are called “Librarians”

One thing I quickly noticed about the Dundrum centre is that it has 10 shoe shops but not a single book shop that I have found (the Easons newsagent doesn’t count). I suppose they’re only responding to demand.

I remember that. It was quite the treat alright.

Ah yes, the memories. For a young lad like myself, coming up from the country, a fantastic library like that was a real treat, compared to the ones at home.

It’s closed now. Building a new one at the back of the Ambassador/Gate Theatre AFAIK.
