8 things about Temple Bar that are more of a problem than the cobblestones

Fix this lot first, Cawley.

MICHAEL CAWLEY, THE chairman of Fáilte Ireland, said that something had to be done about the cobbles in Temple Bar due to the amount of women who can’t walk in them while wearing stilettos.

Well, Cawley, you have a point. But before we tackle woman in high heels, there’s a few other things Temple Bar needs fixed.

1. The prices in pubs

OK OK We’ll spare you ‘the receipt’ but the problem is real. This song lays it out.

2. The buskers

The buskers might be at risk under new proposed bylaws.

What will we do without the guy and his impossible-to-cycle bike?

3. The chains

Starbucks, McDonald’s, Tesco… is nothing sacred?

4. Graffiti

We’ve all seen the trail of genitalia.

But just lose the bad stuff. We can live with this.

5. Hen and stags

GREAT for tourism, but they could disperse a bit, surely?

6. Sandwich boards and sign-holders

A never-ending battle to navigate.

7. Crowds during big events

Like a clown car. We didn’t want to move anyway…

8. The smell

Would it be so hard to slap up a public urinal at night?

* gag*

9. This thing

Destined to remain a source of confusion for decades to come.
