Coming on nicely

A couple of months later, the new allotments on the site of the demolished flats in Chamber Street are looking good. People are beginning to personalise their spaces, and they seem to be cultivating a mixture of vegetables and flowers. I will continue to visit them to see how they develop.

brand new allotments

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.
