Last year, Dublin City Council knocked down three blocks of flats off Cork Street. The site has since been used for circuses and funfairs, but now part of it has been made into a small number of allotments. They have been looking empty and lonely for the past few weeks, but the other day I spotted the first signs of life. It will be interesting to follow the progress of these spaces from demolition site to gardens.
