Capital taking positive steps to boost image

In response to John Meagher's article regarding the unfortunate state of certain parts of Dublin's city centre, I would like to highlight some positive actions being taken to fight back and reclaim some parts of the inner city.
I am part of a group of artists and individuals who have freely given their time, talent and, in some cases, a not inconsiderable amount of money to try and better certain parts of Temple Bar.
There are many laneways and side-streets in Temple Bar, as described in the article, which are prone to gatherings of drug addicts, dealers and drunks where the stench would knock out a garda horse.
