Eyre Square Then and Now

Twelve years ago today, I took some pictures of the construction work in Eyre Square, Forster Street and Fairgreen. The Celtic Tiger was in full swing, but at the time, the redesign of Eyre Square had dragged on years. Nearby, there was building work on Forster Street (opposite the Park Hotel) as well as the major development of the site of the Fairgreen car park (now the location of the bus station).
