Arts Council do not have the resources to support a Celtic Revival or Decade of Commemorations with Celtcia

According to the Art's Council a Decade of Commemorations with Celtcia is not a funding priority. It also highlights that Visual materials supplied by Celtcia are not architectural in their content or ambition this is despite the content appearing in an Advertising Architecture exhibition at an international venue. Has the Arts Council ever supported architecture with Celtic or Irish Symbols? I guess we will never find out...

Celtic or Irish symbols that make Indigenous Irish Architecture are not a priority for the Art's Council with it's engaging architecture program. Ireland needs to come out of it's medieval obsession with hope and a Celtic Revival might just be the answer...

Since its revival in the 1850s, the Celtic cross has been used extensively as grave markers. This was a departure from medieval usage, when the symbol was more typically used for a public monument.



Motion 1261 to Dublin City Council raised by politicians

Dublin City Council have been asked under motion 1261 to formally review and provide a report for a 100 year anniversary flexible civic space concept proposal that can be configured in a variety of traffic options that can provide for Buses, Luas cars and people depending on the program. Which needs to be developed further in an open environment. This is just the formal starting point of the consultative process.

Ireland has been missing Irish Influenced design and investment in the built environment for the last 100 years which is very difficult to do successfully.

It needs to go back to it’s roots and become a nation of hope again.

Any country within the European Union deserves support from Brussels to be able to celebrate a 100 year anniversary with a long term vision and future if it does not have the money itself. Ireland received a spire for the millennium it now needs to aim twice as high and become a functional nation of hope again and allow children of the future a space to play. It should include playgrounds, spaces for Grandfathers and Grandmothers to sit and some grass would be nice in the brutal Dublin Environment yet alone a safe toilet for your children with security in the center of town. It would boost tourism and hope for the people of Ireland. If the vaults of the former Irish Parliament , Bank of Ireland and Trinity College where opened up to the public we don't think the people of Ireland would say no. Give Irish people the choice to decide the future and become a city of hope.
