The northside of Dublin has been starved of it,s rightfull share of tourism. In ways this was done deliberately. Now is the time for people on the northside to demand their slice of this lucrative pie. Look at the marvellous history and architecture to be found north of the Liffey. As we are now entering 100 years since 1916 now is our chance to claim the Revoluntionary Irish mindset as our own. The Southside is welcome to Temple bar and all it,s colonial Lords and ladies. The pictures shown are off the Magazine Fort in the Phoenix Park. A very accessible site for all of Dublin and the world. Yet it lies unused and unloved. It could be turned into a major tourist attraction creating jobs and bringing life back to an area full of charm and resolve .It could be a focal point for a museum to not only 1916 but to Irelands fighting spirit over the centuries. Irelands opposition not only to Protestant British rule but Ireland,s pivotal role in the down fall of the British Empire. If you add in all the revolutionary sites and more on the Northside of Dublin you could have a world class tourist trail on the Northside. Think of the jobs and area pride this would bring. A huge area of Dublin which has been neglected by our politicians and planners on purpose Isuggest; would benefit. The Forts closeness to Collins museum,1916 leaders burial site etc added to nearby Heuston railway station , Conningham road bus depot and Luas line make accessing this lovely part of Dublin a tourist and history buffs dream. Just one thing do,nt tell Min. for Education Ho Chi Minh Quinn about it. Besides being a Dublin 4 reprobate he hate,s History and Nationalisim. [I know; I had to get that dig in against Nation wreckers] . To be continued.
