Letters to the Editor

It is clear that Dublin as a capital city just does not work. This has become increasingly evident with issues such as the housing crisis, the lack of suitable office space, the impact of bus strikes and its image as junkie central.

Dublin needs to increase its density between the canals. There should be a minimum height of eight storeys for new builds within this area.

Not everyone wants to live in a semi-detached house with a garden. There are many thousands of workers who have to commute (and are therefore held to ransom by our ramshackle transport services) into the city, who would prefer to live in apartments close to work.
