The article says North of the Liffey decline of six cranes. (With preparatory work on some very large developments there just beginning)

Quote:
southside count, meanwhile, rose eight to 65 with the construction surge clearly spreading out to the suburbs.

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

Ned's is gone :(. 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.

09/01/2018 Dublin crane count hits new high of 109

https://www.irishtimes.com/business/commercial-property/dublin-crane-count-hits-new-high-of-109-1.3750092

Quote:
There were 109 cranes visible over the centre of Dublin on January 1st from the seventh floor of The Irish Times building on Tara Street.
This is the highest score yet registered by Crane Count – five up on last month’s previous high of 104 and more than triple the 31 cranes recorded on February 1st, 2016, when the newspaper’s crane survey was first launched.


and still going...

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

Some of our ugliest buildings being replaced - ESB, Hawkins House. Can't be worse, surely?

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
