I was surprised to see the destruction of the building on Dawson street and Molesworth Street that previously housed the Government Publications office. It’s slowly being demolished, and the work seems to have been going on all through Christmas. While not exactly a pretty building by any means, it was long a fixture of Dawson street, so it’s kind of sad to see it go.
It’s set to be replaced by a modern designed 5 story building. The Irish times ran a story about it a while ago.
