This is the highest score yet registered by Crane Count – nine more than the previous high of 93 on September 1st – and up 13 on last month’s total of 89. November’s count is more than triple the 31 cranes recorded on February 1st, 2016, when the newspaper’s crane survey was first launched.

I am really missing watching sea every day.
I've liked roast from pub and variety of different takeways. I really loved that there was always good choice, even in smaller towns. Here only in city center there is good choice really.

Some people should go and work in Ireland just to see how you can slow down and not be in such a rush everywhere.. Some of them are really annoying here in Poland, especially on the roads :/

What I don't miss is weather, health service and long commutes.. In recent days here I've had up to 28C which is great, I love this, especially after winter and 10 years in Ireland before that. I am still trying to recover from being a couch potato for a very long time, but I've came back to sport.

I've bought an apartment in development and I am waiting for completion. I don't want to make same mistake like in Dublin, don't want to wait forever. Economy is booming and I am bit afraid that it might overheat. There is a lot of development which is being bought fully months prior to being finished, just like mine. A lot of estate development is much worse than is used to be few years back, too dense with little green space around. My last Irish apartment was next to golf course so it is very different.

There are ups and downs, Sometimes I am thinking about my decision, if it was right one.. Then I am reading Irish newspapers or thepin and then I know why did I leave.. or maybe: why did I stay in Dublin so long..

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.

This could be the high water mark for cranes.

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.
