Dún Laoghaire town centre is at crisis point. There are over 100 empty shops in the town, which is contributing to the feeling of being in a ghost town. The council is hell-bent on creating high-rise, high profile monuments to their own egos on the sea-front, thereby diverting funds, which could be more equally shared throughout the whole town. A town needs an actual commercial centre to be viable. Turning Dún Laoghaire into a Sunday destination will not sustain the town in the long-term.
